1) To access the Rules of the Supreme Court of the State of Oklahoma on Legal Internship AND the online application forms, please click here.
2) As a part of the application process, please schedule a brief meeting with Carol North, Legal Internship Program Administrator.
- Use the Symplicity appointment scheduler tool to request a phone appointment (no in-person appointments will be conducted during the COVID-19 Emergency).
- Documents will require a quick review prior to filing – additional information is often needed by the law school.
3) Upload your application forms in Student Services D2L.
- Assignment Folder: LLI Application File Submission.
- This officially registers your intent with the law school to sit for the examination – the Form 1 application IS the exam registration, this is sometimes a point of confusion.
- Paperwork must be submitted by the published application deadline.
- Incomplete applications cannot be processed.
4) File your application with the Oklahoma Bar Association.
- Applications cannot be processed without the $50 non-refundable application fee.
- If mailing, please allow sufficient time – late applications may not be processed.
- Applications can be delivered to the Bar Center at the corner of NE 18th & Lincoln with a check, or the fee can be paid via credit card at the front desk.
- Applications can also be emailed to the OBA Legal Intern Coordinator (Debra Jenkins at firstname.lastname@example.org).
- If emailing, be advised there is no online pay portal – you can call in your credit card number to the OBA Legal Intern Coordinator at 405-416-7042 (direct line). Note: if she is out of the office, the fee can also be taken at the front desk (405-416-7000).
