The Charleston Law Review and the Riley Institute at Furman University have a proud history of hosting an annual symposium at the Charleston School of Law. During each symposium, distinguished members of the legal community deliver lectures and engage in panel discussions on current legal issues. Recent symposia have addressed the intersection between the law and the following matters:

  • Artificial Intelligence
  • Climate Change
  • Mental Health
  • Sexual Abuse and Sex Trafficking

Following each symposium, the Charleston Law Review publishes articles, essays, and transcriptions of speeches written or given in connection with the symposium’s events. Videos of speeches and panel discussions are also made available by the Charleston School of Law. For more information on the coming year’s symposium and on opportunities for participation therein, please contact Alexis Mourounas, the CLR‘s Symposium Editor, at
