Charleston School of Law
The Charleston School of Law offers students the unique opportunity to study the time-honored practice of law amid the beauty and grace of one of the South’s most historic cities, Charleston, South Carolina.
Tracing its historic traditions to the 1825 formation of The Forensic Club, the Charleston School of Law is reinvigorating the study of law in Charleston by offering a rich, comprehensive three-year program rooted in excellence. Not only can students take advantage of mentoring programs offered in conjunction with Charleston’s collegial, professional Bar, they benefit from a firsthand look at the study of law in a city anchored by a vital, downtown civic hub known as the Four Corners of Law.
“Charleston has played a pivotal role in the development of the rule of law in our country and has a legal community with the highest professional reputation,” says Alex Sanders, former president of the College of Charleston and past chief judge for the S.C. Court of Appeals.
Students at the Charleston School of Law study law as a profession and find a faculty focused on using the law as a calling in the public interest. Faculty members devote their full attention to excellent teaching and scholarship, both in and out of the classroom.
