The Law Center is also home to the American Indian Law Review and the Oklahoma Law Review, currently catering to the academic needs of 500 students.

The University of Oklahoma Law Center offers a legal assistant program for students looking to becoming professional legal assistants. This certificate course is approved by the American Bar Association and offers training for students looking to find employment in any law-related profession, ranging from law firms to insurance companies.
