Law new is the buzzword for lawyers in a changing world.

This new approach is a good thing for existing consumers of legal services. It also lays groundwork for scalable alternatives to law firms.

The University of South Carolina School of Law has officially moved into its new home. The school is celebrating its 150th anniversary, and the move will be commemorated at an event on November 2.
