School of Law

Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

The strength of South Carolina Law comes from the diversity of our community, and we know that we are at our best when we share an equitable and inclusive environment that lifts up each individual and recognizes their unique strengths, viewpoints, and abilities.

The School of Law strongly believes in upholding the Carolinian Creed and strives to ensure that every student, staff member, and faculty member is valued and treated with respect and dignity.

Consistent with our Mission, Vision, and Values, we are dedicated to cultivating a culture that

  • encourages thoughtful, open, and effective communication
  • embraces diversity and inclusiveness in thought, in word, in action, and in representation
  • encourages engagement among faculty, staff, students, and alumni both inside and outside the classroom
  • values the contributions of each member of our law school community

Initiatives:

Faculty and Staff Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Committee

The law school's Faculty and Staff Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Committee is focused on developing initiatives in the law school to foster and maintain a diverse, equitable, and inclusive learning community.

Student Diversity and Inclusion Task Force

Our Student Diversity and Inclusion Task Force, which is compromised of representatives from the Student Bar Association and law school affinity groups, partners with the associate dean for DEI to host engagement opportunities for the law school community.   The task force also maintains the Counselor's Corner, an initiative to ensure that students in our law school community have access to food, personal hygiene and household supplies, and professional attire.

Student Affinity Groups

South Carolina Law offers more than 30 student organizations and affinity groups that allow students to strengthen connections with like-minded members of the law school community or learn more about others and what connects us all. We encourage you to explore the full list of student organizations, get involved, and improve your interpersonal and leadership skills while also having some fun with your peers.
