Law Review inducts new members

The Charleston School of Law hosted its annual Charleston Law Review induction ceremony on Friday.

The ceremony was held at the Charleston Historic Courthouse where second-year law students ceremonially turned the page and signed their names to officially join the editorial staff of the publication.

Charleston Law Review editor in chief Zachary Porter shared the goal with its newest members saying, “We need that continuous mindset of focusing on what we’re really doing: working diligently to produce the best journal possible.”

The newest members of the editorial team were determined through a rigorous writing competition.

Eighteen second-year students were invited to join Charleston Law Review including: Dorothy Blackwelder, Sydney Cameron, Christopher Dalrymple, Toni Gaultney, AnnaTaylor Greene, Bates Holman, Taylor Langston, Gabriel Mangold, Walker Nixon, James Otovic, Jessica Price, Dale Patterson, Zaire Read, Keira Rhoat, Emily Sanders, Katelyn Simmons, Delaney Tyson, and Julia Wilson.

Charleston Law Review faculty advisor Professor Paul Lund said the opportunity allows law students to work in collaboration with people you enjoy spending time with, emphasizing, “writing is so important to what we do as lawyers, no matter what type of lawyer you become.”

Associate Dean of Students Nick Sanders added, “This is an exclusive group. You’ve earned the right to be here both with you with your performance and achievement in the classroom. I encourage you to engage the work and collaborate with each other.”

“Enjoy the experience; really try to soak in everything,” said Dean and Provost Larry Cunningham. “When I was in law school, I was on the law review team. It was one of the most valuable experiences I had as a student.”
