Barrister Breaks

About once a month during the academic year, members of the Charleston School of Law community can be found in the Barrister Lounge enjoying coffee and conversation on a wide range of topics. Our faculty and staff lead a conversation to engage with students and explore timely legal topics, career paths, research interests, and law school programs. Our informal setting in the Barrister Lounge, free coffee, and casual interaction between faculty and students lead to fascinating conversations and opportunities to get to know each other outside a formal classroom.

Keep an eye out for the yellow and orange flyers announcing our next Barrister Break!
