by University of Wyoming College of Law
February 15, 2006
The University of Wyoming College of Law released its honor rolls for the 2005 fall semester. O'Kelley Hardman Pearson, of Pinedale, is the only student listed on the President's Honor Roll. To be eligible for this honor roll, students must maintain a 4.0 average.
The UW College of Law has been accredited by the American Bar Association since 1923 and in 1985 was granted membership in the Order of the Coif, a national honorary society that recognizes excellence in legal education. Fewer than half of American law schools have been granted such membership.
The college is among the country's smallest law schools, providing increased opportunities to participate in student organizations, law review, moot court and trial competitions, and other activities. Students can gain practical experience by participating in clinical programs, which provide opportunities for client representation, including argument of real cases before the Wyoming Supreme Court. UW students also have more meaningful opportunities to interact with members of the state bench and bar, which improves not only their education but also their job prospects upon graduation.
The University of Wyoming is located in Laramie, in the southeastern corner of the state.
