Business and People Notes November 2018

Muscogee (Creek) citizen, Clint Summers, is in his third and final year of law school at the University of Tulsa and was recently selected as TU College of Law’s 2018 Oklahoma Bar Association Student of the Year.

Each year, Oklahoma law schools select one graduating student as the OBA award recipient and to be recognized at the association’s event held in November.

Born in Oklahoma City, Summers grew up in Dallas, Texas, and later attended the University of Oklahoma before relocating to take a position at Willliams in Tulsa. He later left the company to study law at TU.

Summers said that with the help of grant funding, the Muskogee Creek Nation (MCN) made it possible for him to receive both his undergraduate and post-graduate degrees.
While finishing up his degree at TU, he is also working as an articles research editor for the Tulsa Law Review, as well as a research assistant working for TU Professor Russell Christopher, who specializes in criminal law.

Summers authored an article to be published soon in the American Indian Law Journal titled “Rethinking the Federal Indian Status Test: A Look at the Supreme Court’s Classification of the Freedmen of the Five Civilized Tribes of Oklahoma.”
