The Charleston School of Law seeks to create an internal environment that welcomes and fosters diversity and to contribute to creating an inclusive environment in the community and state.

The founders of the Charleston School of Law recognized the inequities that exist among South Carolinians and addressed these deficiencies in the school’s mission statement with these objectives:

  • To teach the practice of law as a profession, having as its chief aim providing public service.
  • To teach the law as a means of providing relief for those who suffer because they are helpless, weak, outnumbered or because they are victims of prejudice.
