Why USC Law?

Where to attend law school is a big decision. It's the first of many important choices that will define your legal career. Here are a few helpful questions to ask about the schools you're considering.

Where do I want to eventually practice law?

If you plan to practice in South Carolina, there's no better place to make the connections that will help you further your career—but our influence doesn't stop at the state lines. We have successful alumni throughout the country, from Wall Street to the Capitol Building. And since South Carolina has adopted the Uniform Bar Exam, you can practice in other states without retaking the bar. 


Who will I be learning from?

Our faculty members are nationally renowned experts in popular practice areas, including litigation, criminal, and business law, as well as specialty areas, such as environmental, technology, and children's law.


What are the facilities like?

Our new building (opening Summer 2017) boasts state-of-the-art classrooms, courtrooms, and plenty of study space and natural light.


Will they help me find a job?

You're never on your own at South Carolina Law. While you're in school, we'll help connect you with externship and pro bono opportunities, as well as put you in touch with law firms, agencies, and the judiciary to help you get a foot in the door. And our career services team offers lifetime service to alumni. Whenever you're ready for a career shift, we're there to guide you through it.
