The Charleston School of Law hosted its Fall 2022 Commencement ceremony on Saturday. The event was held at the Charleston Museum auditorium.
“Graduates are entering the legal profession at a time when their skills and values are needed more than ever,” added Dean and Provost Larry Cunningham. “At the heart of our mission as a law school is the concept of pro bono populi – for the good of the people. Our tremendous faculty and staff have instilled this commitment to public service in students since our founding.”
Of the Fall 2022 graduating class, two students graduated cum laude, three magna cum laude, and one summa cum laude. In addition to academic success, Charleston Law celebrated students for their service to the community.
A core value at the Charleston School of Law is to instill within its graduates a commitment to public service. Students are required to perform a minimum of 50 hours of pro bono (“for the public good”) service to the community.
Five members of the graduating class completed more than 100 hours of public service: Brittany Dixon Fulcher, Abby Leigh Jenkins, Robin Rae Slikker, Lauren Ashley Trigleth, and Samantha Leeann Wicker.
