Merit Scholars Annual Banquet

The Oklahoma City University School of Law Merit Scholars began this banquet in order to bring together all of the Professors, Staff, Faculty and Students.  The Law School community morale and its growth is the drive behind such an event.  The faculty, adjuncts, and staff work hard to provide students with a facility that is overwhelmingly advanced, clean, and welcoming.  The Merit Scholars are proud to host this event each year to show that the effort of the these individuals do not go unnoticed.

We invite all Students, Faculty, Alumni and Members of the Legal Community to attend.  We do ask that you RSVP to any invitation you may receive or inform a Merit Scholars Officer or event committee member.
