Conger practiced law for more than 40 years and was a founding partner at Oklahoma City law firm Hartzog Conger Cason & Neville.
In 2003, Conger began teaching at the law school. He taught trial practice, introduction to legal practice, civil procedure and complex litigation. In 2005, OCU students voted to give Conger the title of professor of the year.
In November, university officials gave Conger the Justice Marian P. Opala Award for Lifetime Achievement in Law. At the time, university officials announced plans to name the courtroom in the law school's new downtown Oklahoma City campus in Conger's honor.
Conger served as Distinguished Lecturer in Law at the law school. He also served as the university's general counsel emeritus, having served as the university's general counsel for eight years.
