NORMAN — The University of Oklahoma College of Law received a $1 million gift from the Chickasaw Nation to establish the Chickasaw Nation Native American Law Chair, the first endowed chair of its kind in the country.

This Chair will allow OU Law to attract and retain the most outstanding national scholar in Native American Law and will be hosted by a permanent faculty member.

OU Law offers three different programs providing specialization in Native American Law: the Juris Doctor Certificate, the Master of Laws and the new Master of Legal Studies.
