Charleston School of Law Dean Larry Cunningham has been invited to speak at the annual Global Legal Forum (GLF) in The Hague this October.
The Law School is also expanding opportunities for students to gain experience in the profession. Charleston Law has partnered with One80Place this fall to create the Homeless Justice Project Clinic. The program has already accepted four 3L students from the school. The partnership will allow students to work closely with low-income and homeless clients and learn more about public interest law. “I am very excited about this new partnership,” said Dean Cunningham. “I am committed to expanding opportunities for students to get real-world, hands-on experience through even more clinics and externships.”
Since the first class in Fall 2004, Charleston School of Law has expanded its alumni base to more than 2,400 graduates. The School has legal professionals working in the community, the state, the region, and across the country. Charleston Law will share its alumni success stories as part of its new podcast, which launched with special guest Ben Pogue (’09).

Safety is a top priority this Fall. With recent spikes in COVID cases across the country and in the state of South Carolina, the Charleston School of Law has temporarily reinstated its “mask required” policy for students, faculty, staff, and campus guests. The decision is based on recommended CDC guidelines.
