The Compleat Lawyer Awards were established in 1992 by the University of South Carolina
School of Law Alumni Council (formerly the Alumni Association) to recognize alumni
for outstanding civic and professional accomplishments. Recipients are individuals
who have made significant contributions to the legal profession and exemplify the
highest standards of professional competence, ethics and integrity.
