Legal Assistance

“This is a cooperative effort between the Charleston Lawyers Club and MUSC Off-Campus Housing”

This legal service is for MUSC students only. To obtain legal advice MUSC students may contact an attorney on this list directly to arrange a 20 minute pro bono consultation at a mutually convenient time. If you require additional legal representation, then it is appropriate for you to make the necessary fee arrangements with the attorney.

NOTICE: The attorneys listed are not employed by MUSC nor are they agents of the University. These attorneys are volunteering their time and talents as part of a time honored tradition of providing limited free legal services. MUSC welcomes and encourages all attorneys to participate but does not screen participating attorneys or endorse their qualifications. This is a private relationship between you and the attorney you choose. MUSC shall not be a party to this relationship and no information gained from this private relationship will be shared with MUSC. You may contact anyone on this list. If for any reason, the selected attorney is unable to assist you, it is appropriate to contact another attorney on this list. Do not contact an attorney if you are already represented by another attorney.

Please send any comments about this program to the MUSC Off-Campus Housing Office. Your suggestions and comments will let us know if the program is of benefit to students and will help us improve the program.
