The Oklahoma Intercollegiate Legislature (O.I.L.) is a student-run mock government that replicates all three branches of the state government of Oklahoma. Besides the most common aspect, mock legislature, O.I.L. also contains a mock executive branch, moot court, and a press corps. https://okoil.org/

Legislative Branch:

  • House of Representatives: The House is the larger house of the legislative branch. The Speaker of the House and the Speaker Pro Tempore are the elected leaders that preside over the House https://okoil.org/house-of-representatives/
  • Senate: The Senate is the equally representative part of the legislature. The Senate is led by the President Pro Tempore and the Deputy President Pro Tempore https://okoil.org/senate/

Executive Branch:

  • The Executive Branch consists of both elected and appointed Executive Officers and appointed Cabinet Officers. These officers are responsible for specific administrative areas the Executive Branch is tasked with. https://okoil.org/executive-branch/

Press Corps:

  • Press Corps is a group of individuals that complete news reports and other forms of reporting throughout the session https://okoil.org/press-corps/
  • Press corps members compete against one another in a competition during the legislative session

Moot Court

The NWOSU O.I.L delegation is open to accepting students of all majors, and there are no academic requirements for participating. We only require that you commit to a single 5-day stay in Oklahoma City.
