Student Ambassadors

One of the best ways to learn about all that TU Law can offer you is to speak directly with a current student. Our student ambassadors are eager to answer your questions – about law school, their experience at TU Law and what it’s like to live here in Tulsa. They come from various parts of the country and have a variety of backgrounds and interests in law. Feel free to get in touch with them at law-ambassadors@utulsa.edu.
