The law school is on schedule to move to their downtown location, 800 N. Harvey, in December of 2014.
The move was approved in October 2012, and the school is on schedule with their original plan of moving to their new location in 2014.
“We’ve been planning our move for 18 months, and it is all falling into place nicely,” Dean Valerie Couch said.
There is not an official moving day, but the move will start the week of Dec. 15, and classes will begin in the new building in the spring semester.
The library already moved to the new building during the summer, but everything else is staying in Sarkeys Law Center until the end of the semester.
The law school’s officials are facing challenges because they haven’t been able to pack up yet due to classes still going on.
“Although we are excited for the move, our students are our top priority and concern, not the move,” said Broke Arbeitman, director of marketing and communications.
The law school’s recruitment has already improved due to the new location because they are the only law school in downtown Oklahoma City that offers the proximity to law firms in walking distance.
The new location gives law students accessibility to professionals and will help them succeed in their field.
The renovations on their new building have all been paid for with money raised from their capital campaign, but Couch said she is unsure of the exact amount they’ve raised.
“It’s going extremely well, and it is all very exciting,” Arbeitman said. “We have lots of support from alumni, law firms in Oklahoma City and the community.”
