The oldest and only public law school in the state, the University of
South Carolina School of Law has a 145-year tradition of excellence. But
we are far from traditional. Our program emphasizes a hands-on approach
that leads to a cutting-edge understanding and application of the law.
Students benefit greatly from the Law School's partnerships with the
National Advocacy Center, the training ground for the U.S. Department of
Justice; the Rule of Law Collaborative, a university-wide initiative
promoting justice and human rights; the Nelson Mullins Riley &
Scarborough Center on Professionalism, promoting ethics and
professionalism in the legal profession; and the Children's Law Center,
ensuring the best outcomes for cases involving children through
education and training. The School of Law’s all-volunteer Pro Bono
program is the oldest in the nation, and the school is the only U.S. Law school
to offer its students a course taught at Gray’s Inn, one of London's
four Inns of Court.
