Street Law Clinic

The Charleston School of Law provides students with a unique clinical experience in “Street Law.”  This clinic blends legal content with interactive teaching strategies, focusing on the role of law, Courts, fairness, and equality in our State and in our country.  This clinic offers students the opportunity to serve the residents of the Lowcountry by working with high school students and teachers on legal projects; by learning to manage conflict; by building partnerships in the community; and by breaking down barriers that exist among those who are underrepresented in the legal profession.

Charleston School of Law selected for International Street Law Collaboration Project

Charleston School of Law was one of five Law Schools in the United States selected to participate in the International Street Law Collaboration Project.  This project connects Street Law programs with like programs in eastern Europe.  The goal is to form strong partnerships between American and Russian law students, faculty, and high schools to address common social issues in the United States and the Russian communities. Law students and high school students will collaboratively design and implement joint educational projects that will include their communities.

Street Law programs are innovative programs in which law students teach non-lawyers about laws, the legal system, and fundamental principles of democracy and citizenship. Law students are trained in interactive effective teaching pedagogy; then, they teach high school students, under-served populations, and others their rights and responsibilities under the Constitution and ways to thrive as productive members of society.
