University of South Carolina School of Law

The School of Law enjoys a rich and venerable tradition as one of the nation's oldest law schools. Since 1867, we have remained true to our mission of teaching law through in-depth study, contributing to the common good through faculty and student research, bolstering the fund of legal knowledge, fostering legal development and reform, and cooperating with state government, the community, and the organized Bar to develop and implement legal research, law reform, criminal justice reform, and continuing legal education. The University of South Carolina School of Law provides unsurpassed preparation for leadership by graduating many future members of the state's judiciary, legislature, and executive agencies.

The University of South Carolina School of Law is one of the nation's oldest law schools and the state's only nonprofit law school. We have a lot to offer our students, including enthusiastic faculty, a brand new building with state of the art technology, and a flexible curriculum that allows students to focus on their interests.

Location

As a flagship university in a capital city, the School of Law has deep connections to our government. Our new building is walking distance from important hubs like the State House and the Supreme Court of South Carolina, and our students frequently find externships and career opportunities within our network.

Opportunity

From our award-winning Pro Bono Program to our externships and clinics, you will have the opportunity to dive deep on subjects you are passionate about. While first year students everywhere have similar courses, in your second and third years you can explore your interests, studying in major practice areas like litigation or corporate law, or in specialized areas such as environmental law, children's law, or small business law.

Connections

We have a vast alumni network throughout the state and the country. If you want to stay in South Carolina after graduation, there's no better place to make contacts in government or private practice. If you plan to go elsewhere, we have alumni in major cities nationwide. Plus, South Carolina has adopted the Uniform Bar Examination format, so you can take the bar here, but have the opportunity to practice in any state that has also adopted the UBE.  

Value

South Carolina Law is an outstanding value in legal education. South Carolina Law graduates carry very little debt compared to graduates of other schools.
