Charleston School of Law recognizes Pro Bono Week
Pro Bono Week begins Monday, October 24. The annual event that recognizes and celebrates the legal professions commitment to serving those in need across the country.
In support of this 2022 Pro Bono Week, Gov. Henry McMaster signed an official proclamation to recognize the importance of pro bono work and the need to assist one of the state’s most vulnerable populations.
Charleston School of Law has developed pro bono opportunities for students. These placements allow students to work with attorneys practicing in the public interest legal sector and meet or exceed the pro bono work the School of Law requires for graduation.
Students at Charleston Law recorded more than 12,000 hours of community service and pro bono week in 2021. Since the school’s inception, students have performed more than 240,000 of community service in the community, state and region.
If your firm is active in pro bono service, be sure to join the conversation and recognize your team on Twitter using #PalmettoProBono.
