During the summer of 2022, a groundbreaking new building opened at the University of South Carolina School of Law. The School of Law recently announced the newest faculty members who will teach in the 2022-2023 academic year. The incoming class of law students is the most academically accomplished class in the school’s history. These students will be paired with peer mentors, and will be joined by faculty in 14 locations across the Midlands.
The new building is part of the School of Law’s commitment to the rule of law, as well as to improving the lives of youth in South Carolina. It will house a first-class training space for the Children’s Law Center, which will help improve efforts to protect children. It will also be home to an immersive learning simulation that will help children learn about law and litigation.
The new building is also home to a new law library, which will be closed while the library moves into the new building. The library expects to reopen on May 30. This move is part of the process to relocate from the existing building on the campus of the University of South Carolina School of Law to the new building.
The new building will also house the University of South Carolina Veterans Legal Clinic. The clinic will open on July 2 and will provide a variety of free legal services to veterans and military families. In addition, the clinic will have a first-class training space for students and faculty.
In addition to the new building, the school has a number of programs and events. For instance, the law school recently hosted its first Cybersecurity Legal Institute. The school also hosts a variety of thought-provoking programs that encourage students to utilize available resources. Those programs include the Lawyers & Leadership seminar, which offers a unique individualized approach to legal education. Other programs include the Adopt a Teacher program, which allows students to donate time to local schools. The college is also working with teachers to ensure that students are learning the skills necessary to succeed in a changing legal environment.
The school also announced its newest addition to the Teaching Faculty: Assistant Professors Etienne Toussaint and Madalyn Wasilczuk. These two professors join Associate Professors Bennett Nelson, Sheryl Buske, and Joel Samuels as faculty members in the School of Law. The addition of these three faculty members will expand the School’s ability to provide a holistic approach to legal education.
Additionally, the law school is hosting the first Cybersecurity Legal Institute in April. The program will feature presentations by top legal and political officials. In addition, the School of Law is facilitating a series of programs about gender non-conforming people. The College of Law is also launching its Health Law Certificate, which will focus on legal issues related to health care.
The school recently announced a donation from the Konduros Fisherman Fund of more than $1 million. This donation will provide resources for the Rule of Law Collaborative, which is directed by Joel Samuels. The Collaborative will support the efforts of post-conflict countries and help fragile countries recover.
