Tulsa Law School Announces Partnership with Chinese University

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - The University of Tulsa has announced an energy law partnership with a university in Beijing, China.

Tulsa officials announced Monday that the agreement with Beijing Normal University will allow students there to receive a degree with a concentration in energy law.

TU's College of Law Dean Janet Levit says the collaboration will allow Chinese law students to learn more about energy law from experts in Oklahoma.

TU says the partnership resulted after Asia was identified as a region of strategic interest for the university.
