The University of Tulsa College of Law has many things to be proud of, not the least of which is its esteemed faculty. From 1923 through the present, Oklahoma’s easternmost law school has assembled a wide variety of legal scholars whom share the same goal: crafting tomorrow’s lawyers today. Since 2008, this group of roughly 40 faculty members, less than 400 students, and the administrative staff have been led by Dean Janet Levit. Over her career, Dean Levit has argued cases before the 10th Circuit and the Inter-American Court of Human Rights. Moreover, she is a published author who has contributed to various law journals and other publications. Now, her primary focus is progressing Tulsa’s Law School as an administrator and professor. Dean Levit was kind enough to take some time out of her busy schedule to speak to me on a number of topics, ranging from the evolution of legal education and the challenges faced by both law students and administrators to media portrayals of the legal profession. I greatly enjoyed our conversation. I think you will as well. Read More

The decision came too late to save Charles Warner. On January 15, Warner was executed by lethal injection on Oklahoma's death row after the United States Supreme Court refused to grant a stay of execution. The Supreme Court said that it would not review whether or not the use of a particular drug used in a lethal injection protocol for the execution of inmates was a violation of the Eighth Amendment right to be free from cruel and unusual punishment.

As the number of states which allow legal marijuana in one capacity or another continues to grow, law enforcement and other entities are looking for ways
to better detect "stoned" drivers.
On almost every major holiday, or in the days surrounding it, there seems to be an increase in the number of impaired drivers on Oklahoma roads. Law enforcement agencies know that many people celebrate these holidays at parties and get-togethers where alcohol is consumed--often in large quantities. Because of this, local police, county sheriff's offices, and the Oklahoma Highway Patrol take measures to get impaired drivers off the streets. They publicly announce that they will be increasing patrols--known as saturation patrols--looking for impaired drivers, and they announce that there will be sobriety checkpoints around the city, although they do not typically divulge where these DUI roadblocks will be located.

As I am working on a few client's cases, I've come to the realization that, much like a large portion of criminal defense practice, your average first-time offender (and even some folks who have been through the system before) has no idea what a restitution hearing, let alone the term "restitution" itself, actually means and encompasses.
