Have you fulfilled ALL of the following eligibility requirements?
- Current student in good academic standing
- Requisite credit hours and coursework recorded on your transcript
- Approved law student registration/character investigation
- Passing score on the Legal Internship Examination
Here are the last TWO steps required for certification of your eligibility for limited licensure:
1) When you have secured a supervising attorney, file your ORIGINAL Form 2 with the Oklahoma Bar Association and a COPY with Law Career Services.
2) And finally, in order to be certified for licensure you must be enrolled in the law school’s Legal Internship Program (including the summer term).
- OCU School of Law tracks participation via assigning the program a course number and entering it on your transcript, but it is not a class
- There is no fee involved
- No academic credit is given (Satisfactory or Unsatisfactory grade only)
- Enrollment may be accomplished in one of two ways:
a) Fill out an Add/Drop Form in the Academic Services Office requesting that the Registrar Specialist enroll you in the program for the one appropriate fall or spring semester, or summer term in which you will be licensed.
b) Click here to send a written request via email to the Academic Services Office requesting that the Registrar Specialist enroll you in the program for the one appropriate fall or spring semester, or summer term in which you will be licensed.*
*You MUST send this request through your OCU student email account for identity verification purposes; requests from personal email accounts will be declined with instructions to resubmit from your student account.
Then what happens?
3) The Legal Internship Program Administrator will issue a letter of certification to the Oklahoma Bar Association that all your eligibility requirements have been satisfied and the law school recommends that you be granted a limited license to practice law in the State of Oklahoma.
4) The OBA Legal Intern Coordinator will contact you via email regarding your date of licensure.
5) Both offices will keep you apprised of all the pertinent details surrounding the swearing-in ceremony.
