Historical Society

Welcome to the South Carolina Supreme Court Historical Society!  Let’s journey together through South Carolina’s fascinating legal history as we learn about interesting jurists, landmark cases and events that transformed the legal landscape of our state.  I invite you to become a member today and join fellow lawyers and judges across South Carolina on this exciting journey.
