Palmetto Leader in Orangeburg and more

We had an eventful trip to Orangeburg on Sept. 24th A great team of problem solvers ( we had lots of problems to solve)

We even made the news!  The WLTX Street Squad came to visit.

Yes, I need a haircut, no comments! But the words of the clients made everything worthwhile.

Wills and health care powers of attorney were prepared by lawyers with the able assistance of amazing law students.

Lisa Deitle was our printing and problem solving guru!




After a long day of helping people with legal issues the team took time out to visit the Cecil Williams SC Civil Rights Museum. Mr. Williams, 81, a noted SC photographer documented many of SC’s leading civil rights moments including the Briggs V. Elliott case and the Orangeburg Massacre. His museum is loaded with important first hand photos and memorabilia highlighting many important moments in SC’s civil rights struggle.  You may know the history but nothing can beat hearing from the people involved. A picture is worth a thousand words. Information about the Cecil Williams SC Civil Rights Museum and be found online. Worth a stop!

New School Year!

So much about the Fall semester will be new. For the Class of 2024 it is all a mystery and even for some in the Class of 2023 being in the building will feel strange. But for those of us who have been here all along we say:

We have missed you and are looking forward to an engaging pro bono experience with limited ZOOM meetings!

NAACP Eviction Navigators

Working with the national NAACP and the local Columbia Chapter, eviction navigators are being recruited to help (virtually) citizens figure out solutions to their eviction and housing issues. Volunteers will be provided with training and resources.  Eventually this initial effort may result in a need for pro bono legal assistance as cases develop.

For more information here is the full description

If after reviewing this job description you want to enroll, simply submit the Pro Bono Interest form and a very short application will be sent to you.

A terrific opportunity to work hands-on on solutions in an emerging crisis.
