Charleston, South Carolina is a high-volume, expanding port and a world-class resort city. Condé Nast Traveler consistently rates Charleston the number one city for travelers in the U.S. The Charleston School of Law is located in the historic peninsula of the city within view of eighteenth-century church spires and the busy waterfront. By combining both historic preservation and vital maritime commerce, Charleston is the perfect place for this program.
The primary objective of our program is to bring students together with the most experienced practitioners, judges, and professors in a broad range of admiralty law specialties, and with the non-lawyer maritime professionals that make our port such a success.
