Family & Small Business Program
Our mission is to support the resilience of family and small businesses. We provide
resources and networking opportunities for South Carolina business owners. As a first-of-its-kind
law school program, we offer students classes and applied learning opportunities to
develop the perspective and skills that they need to represent family and small businesses
effectively. In addition, we seek to identify risk factors for family and small businesses
and to advocate for practical solutions.
Our Mobile Law Office
We understand the importance of outreach, and we are taking our program on the road
to smaller South Carolina communities that cannot easily reach us. The Palmetto LEADER
is a custom-built bus that includes two private offices, a waiting area, and technology
that the law school uses to deliver on-site services such as drafting wills, reviewing
legal documents, and providing legal counsel to those who are otherwise unable to
afford assistance. To our knowledge, it is the only mobile law office operated by
a law school in the United States.
