Diversity Committee Highlights Members of local Judiciary

The Education Sub-Committee is highlighting Black members of our judiciary and the history that has influenced them. We are featuring some of our finest Richland County Judges throughout the month of February. They have been kind enough to share a little about who and what inspired their legal careers. We hope you will take a moment to listen to the wonderful insights from our Judges and see how Black history has shaped, and will continue to shape, our Richland County Bar.

GOING ON NOW: SUPREME COURT GROUNDS BEAUTIFICATION PROJECT

The Supreme Court Beautification Project is a state-wide effort of county bars and private attorneys of South Carolina. It consists of placing a wall along Sumter Street, providing additional lighting to the parking lot, establishing proper shade trees in the parking lot, and replacing asphalt with permeable concrete pavers. We are working hard to raise the funds needed to complete the project. Your support is appreciated!
