The Office of the President provides strategic direction and innovation for the Charleston School of Law. The president also serves as managing partner of the school’s Board of Directors.
When Ed Bell, one of the leading trial attorneys in the nation, assumed the mantle of president of the Charleston School of Law in October 2015, he outlined a dynamic vision:
“I’ve watched this school grow and take shape over the years, and I’m proud that our great state of South Carolina offers students two strong choices for a top-tier legal education,” he said. “Our vision is one that puts students and faculty first as we move into a future that will include the implementation of innovative learning and teaching opportunities, and mirror our founding motto pro bono populi,” which translates as “for the benefit of the people.”
