Frequently Asked Questions

Is there a fee to post a job or to conduct on-campus interviews?

We believe that part of the law school’s mission is to assist employers in finding the right person for a job opening. Employers may post as many positions as they wish at no charge in the Law Career Services Symplicity database.

What is Symplicity?

This is the Career Services Management software system which facilitates many aspects of the hiring process for the employer, student/graduate, and law school.

Can you help me locate students and/or attorneys who might be interested in my practice?

Absolutely! Symplicity is available to students and graduates. When you submit a request for an on-campus recruiting schedule or job posting, there are options available for you to indicate the experience level you seek. Based on your hiring criteria, applicants will be able to view positions for which they are eligible. Once the opportunity has been posted, Law Career Services is able to promote this to potential applicants.

My practice area is quite specialized and I have specific recruiting needs. Can you assist at this level?

Yes! Just as there are options to indicate the experience level for candidates, using Symplicity will allow you to indicate other specialized criteria such as undergraduate background, practice area experience, geographic preference, academic achievement, extracurricular activities, etc. Law Career Services encourages students and graduates to keep their profiles updated to reflect their interests and experience levels as that allows us to bring specific opportunities to their attention.

Can you explain the Oklahoma City University School of Law’s Grading Policy and Ranking System?

Grade Scale and Ranking

The faculty of Oklahoma City University School of Law grades on a 4.0 scale. Class ranks are computed twice per year based on grades from the fall and spring semesters. A CALI award on a student’s transcript means the student received the top grade in a course or section.

The faculty’s grading scale includes pluses and minuses and ranges from the top grade of A down a D+, D, D-, and F.

Graduation With Honors

The faculty awards the Juris Doctor degree cum laude to students graduating in the top 20% of their graduating class, the Juris Doctor degree magna cum laude to students graduating in the top 10% of their graduating class, and the Juris Doctor degree summa cum laude to students graduating in the top 5% of their graduating class.

Dean’s List

The Dean’s List for a semester consists of all students ranking in the top 25% of their class (or the top 25% of their section, if first-year students) for that semester on the basis of their term GPA.

Faculty Honor Roll

The Faculty Honor Roll for a semester consists of all students who complete at least eight hours, achieve a 3.0 (8.0 on the 12-point scale) grade point average for that semester, and rank in the top 10% of their class for that semester.

Phi Kappa Phi

Law students of sound character who have completed a minimum of 60 law school credit hours or the equivalent, of which at least 30 credit hours have been earned at Oklahoma City University, and who rank scholastically in the top 10% of their class, will be invited to join Phi Kappa Phi.
