Mission of the College of Law

Preamble

The University of Tulsa College of Law occupies an integral and dynamic position within a forward-thinking, private, doctoral-degree-granting University and plays a vital role in its partnerships with the community, the bench and bar, industry, tribal nations and national and international scholarly communities.

Mission Statement

Notice

The University of Tulsa Law Bulletin is published annually as a guide to curricula, course descriptions, costs, University policies, and other information. In keeping with established procedures, the University may change programs of study, academic requirements, faculty, curricula, course descriptions, costs, policies, the academic calendar, or other information without prior notice. The University reserves the right to correct factual errors whenever they are discovered. It is the student’s responsibility to stay abreast of current regulations, curricula, and the status of the specific program being pursued. Students are responsible for adherence to all University policies, regulations, and program requirements, including student conduct codes that apply to academic and extra-curricular activities. All University Bulletins are available on the University’s website.

Undergraduate and graduate programs are offered by all colleges and are described in the current Undergraduate Bulletin and Graduate Bulletin.

Accreditation

The University of Tulsa College of Law is fully accredited by the American Bar Association (ABA) Council Section of Legal Education and Admissions to the Bar (address: 321 N. Clark St., 21st Floor, Chicago, IL 60654 / phone: 312.988.6738 / email: legaled@americanbar.org / website: https://www.americanbar.org/groups/legal_education/contact_us.html) since 1953.

Non-discrimination Policy

The University of Tulsa is firmly committed to providing equal opportunity for all our community members, irrespective of a person's background. In all its activities, the University condemns and prohibits in the strongest terms the adverse treatment of any member of the TU community motivated by a bias against, or hatred toward, individuals or groups based on their characteristics such as age, ancestry, color, creed, disability or handicap, gender identity, genetic information, marital or family status, national origin, political belief, pregnancy, pregnancy-related conditions, race, religion, sex, sexual orientation, or veteran status (hereinafter "protected status").

 

Seeking to foster an environment where free expression and speech flourish, the University finds discrimination only in acts where a person is treated adversely based on their protected status. Such an act occurs when it has a substantial, unreasonable and materially negative impact on a person's interaction with University programs, activities, opportunities or benefits. Mere minor or trivial actions or conduct, even those considered generally offensive and controversial, cannot be considered adverse treatment. The University is committed to the idea that this type of discomfort and exchange is critical to the educational experience. It is this participation in a strong and vibrant marketplace of ideas that makes TU a thought leader in our city, state, nation and global society.

 

The University's full non-discrimination and harassment policy can be found here. Questions regarding implementation of this policy may be addressed to the University's Equal Opportunity Officer, Kathleen Smith, 104 McClure Hall, 918-631-2321. Requests for accommodation of disabilities may be addressed to the University's 504 Coordinator, Dr. Tawny Rigsby, 104 McClure Hall, 918-631-2315. To ensure availability of an interpreter, five to seven days' notice is needed; 48 hours is recommended for all other accommodations.
