Our student affairs team is ready and willing to answer any questions you have and to help you get settled in your new life as a law student.

Access Lex has launched its latest tool, AccessLex Law School Scholarship Databank, which houses a searchable collection of nearly 800 scholarships and writing competitions for law students.

The University of South Carolina Joseph F. Rice School of Law provides the opportunity for our students to take advantage of an Emergency Loan program. An "emergency" for the purpose of qualifying for an emergency student loan is defined as "a sudden state of financial need relating to or impacting on the education of a law student."

The law school supports over 30 law school student organizations. A list of active law school student organizations can be found here. To help support and help guide law school student organizations, the Law School Student Organization Handbook is published on TWEN in the Student Organization Resource course. All students enrolled in the law school have access to TWEN. To view the page, please click here (log-in required).
