Ancestral Land Acknowledgment

Oklahoma City University School of Law honors the Indigenous people who inhabited this land before the United States was established. They include the Apache, Caddo, Tonkawa and Wichita. We also honor those tribes who have a historic relationship to this region, including the Comanche, Kiowa, Osage and Quapaw. We acknowledge the Muscogee (Creek) and Seminole, who were forcibly relocated to this land by the United States federal government.

 We acknowledge that the 39 sovereign tribal nations inhabiting what is now Oklahoma originate from all four corners of the North American continent, and we commit ourselves to honoring the land and the people who have stewarded it since time immemorial. We also commit ourselves to continuing to learn how to be better stewards of the land we inhabit for the benefit of future generations.

Our Neighborhood

OCU Law’s location in the heart of downtown Oklahoma City offers a significant advantage when it comes to accessing everything you need. Students are within walking distance to courthouses, law firms, government agencies, and corporations. There are also unique districts, cultural and entertainment venues, and lots of local flavor nestled around campus.

Our home at 800 N. Harvey is your home. Come find your favorite spot, whether it’s on a comfy couch in McLaughlin Hall or a private table inside our café.

Located in downtown Oklahoma City, our law school resides inside the historic Oklahoma (Central) High School building, now renovated with the latest technology. The structure is designed to provide our students, alumni, and the community with a top-notch library, convenient meeting place, classic courtroom, or quiet space to work and study. Classically designed by famous architect Solomon Andrew Layton in 1910, the five-level building occupies an entire city block and is listed on the National Register of Historic Buildings.
