Media Law School

The Media Law School, hosted by the University of South Carolina School of Law and College of Information and Communications, and sponsored by the American Board of Trial Advocates, provides selected journalists with the opportunity to develop a better understanding of the key stages of civil and criminal proceedings and to learn enough basic law to report accurately on many important issues in the news.

From October 12-14, 2022, approximately two dozen journalists who are selected as Media Law School Fellows will receive instruction from law professors and lawyers.

Best of all, Fellows can receive this training at little to no cost.  There is no  registration fee, and Fellows receive a $400 travel allowance and three nights lodging at Graduate Columbia (formerly the Inn at USC). Classes are held at the School of Law (1525 Senate Street, Columbia, South Carolina 29208), within walking distance of the Inn on the campus of the University of South Carolina.
