Oklahoma Legal Oral History

Interviews with Oklahoma Legal Professionals

Oklahoma Legal Oral History Project

In the summer of 2008 the Oklahoma City University Law Library received a grant from the American Association of Law Libraries to conduct an oral history interviewing project focusing on attorneys and judges in Oklahoma.  The goal of the project was to interview attorneys and judges throughout the state of Oklahoma to gain understanding and create a collection of narratives about Oklahoma’s legal profession.

Members of the Oklahoma Legal Community were interviewed for this project. You can read a short biography, listen to a short selection of the interview, and read the transcript by clicking on the interview subject's name in the list to the left.

Recordings and transcripts of these interviews are owned by the Chickasaw Nation Law Library at Oklahoma City University School of Law. These interviews and transcripts are provided for educational and scholarship purposes. Further permission may be required from the interview subject for other purposes. Interview subjects have given the Law Library all literary and property rights which they have deemed to have in their interviews as well as their right, title, and interest in any copyright related to the oral history interviews which may be secured by current or future U.S. statutes. This gift does not restrict any use interview subjects may make of information in the interview or transcript. Reproduction, distribution, display, and the creation of derivative works are at the discretion of the Law Library.
