The Norick Municipal Law Research Clinic provides students with a unique opportunity to explore the multitude of legal issues handled by the City of Oklahoma City’s Municipal Counselor’s Office. Students are assigned to research issues from all six “lines of business” handled by the Office including administration, criminal justice, civil litigation, labor and employment, land use and economic development, and trusts, utilities, and finance. Professional skills are developed through several live client meetings, in-depth research, and drafting a formal research memorandum. The semester-long experience culminates with a client presentation where students present and discuss research findings.
The clinic is named for former Oklahoma City mayor and Oklahoma City University Board of Trustees Chairman Ronald J. Norick. This groundbreaking clinic is the first of its kind in the nation. For more information contact Lee Peoples, Frederick Charles Hicks Professor of Law and Law Library Director.
