The University of Tulsa's mission is nurtured and supported by: exceptional faculty, who draw students into the pursuit of knowledge, introducing them to the pleasures and responsibilities of the life of the mind in a challenging world, and who include in their numbers the 1998-99 Carnegie Foundation Professor of the Year for all U.S. doctoral and research universities, a national Carnegie Foundation Pew Scholar, a Carnegie Foundation Professor of the Year for Oklahoma, a member of the National Academy of Engineering, and four Fellows of the Institute for Advanced Study. a humanities-based general curriculum that stimulates scientific, social, and artistic inquiry, while stressing competence in oral and written communication; graduate, professional, and research programs that foster advanced theoretical development, promote professional preparation, enhance the quality of the faculty, and extend the University's international reach; substantial library resources and information technology that support research and classroom learning; a residential campus that fosters a sense of community and integrates curricular and extracurricular life; and abundant opportunities for students to undertake community service, internships, and study abroad; to participate in substantive research, often as early as the freshman year; and to study and reflect in ways that foster intellectual, spiritual, and moral growth. TU's 200-acre campus is located two miles east of downtown Tulsa, a metropolitan city with a population exceeding a half a million people.

Education
J.D.
Class of 1994

Located in New Haven, Connecticut, Yale Law School is one of the world’s premier law schools. It offers an unmatched environment of excellence and educational intimacy in the form of world renowned faculty, small classes, limitless opportunities for clinical training, and strong encouragement of public service. The Law School is small by design; its impact on the world is measured by its accomplished graduates and its ongoing scholarship and outreach through numerous centers and projects. For students, the experience is unparalleled. The faculty-student ratio supports a vast array of courses and opportunities for independent research and student-organized seminars. Students get practical training by representing real clients in clinics starting in their first year. Throughout, a spirit of collaboration reigns. All first-term courses are ungraded, and subsequent classes are graded honors/pass/low pass. Yale Law School is unique among law schools in that it produces leaders in all walks of life: distinguished deans and faculty members at law schools across the country and the world; industry CEOs and corporate counsels; founders of nongovernmental organizations and other nonprofit entities; entrepreneurs; government servants in federal, state, and local offices and the judiciary--just a few areas in which our alumni's talent and passion and dedication have made a difference. Among the School’s graduates are U.S. Presidents and Supreme Court Justices; and among its far-reaching projects, the Information Society Project and the China Center.
