Charleston School of Law

The Charleston School of Law is a for-profit law school located in Charleston, South Carolina, established in 2003. The school was fully accredited by the American Bar Association in August 2011. The school was founded upon a principle of promoting public service by its students and graduates; each student must perform at least 30 hours of public service before graduation. According to Charleston School of Law's 2013 ABA-required disclosures, 53.33% of the Class of 2013 obtained full-time, long-term, JD-required employment nine months after graduation.HistoryInspiration and establishmentIn 2002, five Charleston judges and attorneys started to work on establishing a law school in Charleston. The school would be the first organized effort to offer instruction in the law in Charleston since the 1828 dissolution of the Forensic Club. The five founders were Alex Sanders (a former president of the College of Charleston and a former Chief Judge of the South Carolina Court of Appeals); Edward J. Westbrook (a lawyer in Charleston); the Robert Carr (a U.S. magistrate judge); George Kosko (a U.S. magistrate judge until 2008); and Ralph McCullough (a professor emeritus and former associate dean at the University of South Carolina Law School). The five founders created a limited liability company through which to operate the law school, and its creation was approved by the South Carolina Secretary of State on May 12, 2003. In 2004, the South Carolina Commission on Higher Education granted a license to allow the school to start accepting students in Fall 2004.
