The Charleston School of Law offers students the unique opportunity to study the time-honored practice of law amid the beauty and grace of one of the South’s oldest and most prestigious cities, Charleston, South Carolina. Founded in 2003, the Charleston School of Law is a freestanding school, and it received full accreditation from the ABA on August 4, 2011.
Located in beautiful downtown Charleston, the school is conveniently situated near the historic “four corners of the law” as well as a thriving legal community and the federal and county courthouses. Students study law in a collegial learning environment unlike any other, which is evidenced by the fact that The Princeton Review ranked Charleston Law #4 in the nation for Best Quality of Life in both 2017 and 2018. In addition, our professors were ranked #10 in the nation in student satisfaction for three straight years (2016-2018). These rankings are a testament to the student-centered focus at the school. Charleston Law students develop close relationships with their professors that last well beyond graduation. We hope you will visit the Charleston School of Law to experience what makes the law school unique.
