Mentoring

Our mentoring programs are coordinated by the Nelson Mullins Riley & Scarborough Center on Professionalism.

1L Mentors

Each South Carolina Law student is assigned a mentor at Orientation. These mentors help guide students through their first year and answer questions about the practice of law. Our mentors serve as an invaluable resource to students beginning their law school journey.


3L Mentors

Our 3L Mentor program is a voluntary program where third-year students preparing to launch their own careers are matched with established attorneys. A mentor's expertise is invaluable at this stage in a law student's experience as they prepare to turn theory into practice in the real world.


Judicial Observation and Experience

The Judicial Observation and Experience (JOE) Program places students for up to two weeks in the summer with members of the state and federal judiciary in South Carolina. Students observe the court's daily routine and court proceedings, and have the opportunity to discuss their observations with the judge.
