OCU Law Faculty Speak at AALS Conference

Three members of the OCU Law faculty spoke at this year's AALS Annual Meeting in San Diego, California. Dean and Professor of Law Lawrence Hellman will speak on a non-degree certificate in American law program that has been offered at Oklahoma City University to Chinese law students from Nankai University in Tianjin, China, and to lawyer members of the Tianjin (China) Bar Association. This program has served as a gateway to LL.M. programs for some of its participants.

Professor Carla Spivack will speak on Donative Transfers, Fiduciaries and Estate Planning.

Professor Lee Peoples will speak on a panel titled Librarian as Scholar and will present his paper Controlling the Common Law: A Comparative Analysis of No-Citation Rules and Publication Practices in England and the United States, 17 Indiana International & Comparative Law Review 307 (2007).
