Law & Society Series

The Riley Institute and the Charleston Law Review of the Charleston School of Law partnered to launch the Law & Society symposium series in 2009. Held annually in Charleston and offering continuing legal education credits, the Law and Society series presents leading political and legal thinkers in a lively exploration of diverse legal issues impacting our progress as individuals, a state, and a nation. The symposia bring together panels of distinguished judges, legislators, attorneys and legal scholars to provide historical observations and trends, insights into associated legal issues and processes, and suggestions for change from varied perspectives.

At a time of unprecedented social and economic pressure, the Law & Society series provides a forum for dialogue important to legal practitioners and citizens alike.
