Charleston Law 2023 Faculty Presentations

Charleston School of Law faculty led more than 50 legal presentations, conferences, CLEs and workshops during the 2023 calendar year. 

“Charleston Law faculty are not only impressive classroom teachers, but they are also regularly sought out by external audiences for their expertise,” said Dean Larry Cunningham.

Eighteen Law School faculty members hosted presentations on many of the subjects in today’s headlines including Generative AI, Digital privacy and technology, NCAA College Athletes’ Name, Image, and Likeness Rights, Second Amendment legal challenges, and Chat GPT.
