The University of South Carolina School of Law is the oldest and only public law school in South Carolina. In 2012, it was named one of the best schools for state and local clerkships, and was one of the top 25 "Best Schools for Bar Exam Preparation," both by National Jurist Magazine. Students benefit greatly from the Law School's partnerships with the National Advocacy Center, the training ground for the U.S. Department of Justice; the Rule of Law Collaborative, a university-wide initiative promoting justice and human rights; the Nelson Mullins Riley & Scarborough Center on Professionalism, promoting ethics and professionalism in the legal profession; and the Children's Law Center, ensuring the best outcomes for cases involving children through education and training. The School of Law’s all-volunteer pro-bono program is the oldest in the nation. The School of Law is the only school in the nation to offer its students a course taught at Grays’s Inn, one of London's four Inns of Court.
