Students give back to the community through 9th annual service project

The University of South Carolina School of Law welcomed 217 new first-year students for the first week of classes. All 1L students, along with their peer mentors and the Pro Bono Board members, worked at 14 different sites around the community, donating their time, energy and service to the greater Midlands area.

Faculty and staff joined the groups to lend their hand, as well as use the time to get to know the new students. This is the ninth year the School of Law has participated in a community service day. Groups worked at the following sites:
