SC Senator Greg Hembree met with Little River Rotarians at their August 26th meeting to provide one of his frequent SC Senate updates to the club.  However, before Senator Hembree could begin his talk, PDG Craig Hill led the club in a belated but rousing rendition of Happy Birthday in honor of the senator’s birthday the previous week.  Senator Hembree was then presented with a tray of delicious homemade cupcakes made by the club’s own Donna Levinski.

Senator Hembree then provided the club with his SC Senate update including the impacts that the COVID pandemic has had on the Legislature this year and what to expect for the remainder of the year and into 2021.  Senator Hembree closed his remarks with a heartfelt message about coping with these uncertain and difficult times and how organizations like Rotary can help us better understand each other and the trials we are all facing in these uncertain times.

USC Law School Anchors City’s Legal Corridor

Nov 302017

Since opening earlier this year, the University of South Carolina’s new School of Law has become the anchor for a “law corridor of Columbia” running along Gervais Street, says dean Rob Wilcox.  He told Capital Rotary members on a tour Nov. 29 (he’s at far right in photo) that the legal district also includes the S.C. Supreme Court, the State House and the National Advocacy Center, which trains attorneys from the U.S. Justice Department.  The three-story, $80 million law school features 17 classrooms and two realistic courtrooms.  Wilcox said its design has a purpose and an impact that goes beyond mere aesthetics.  “It’s designed to send a message to our students – it’s not just college anymore,” he explained.  “It’s the beginning of your profession.  Different things will be expected of students here.  There are responsibilities that come with this.”  USC’s School of Law is one of the nation’s oldest and the state’s only nonprofit law school.  Its new home occupies nearly an entire city block at Bull and Gervais streets.  Capital Rotary’s tour was part of the club’s Fifth Wednesday program featuring local field trips in place of a regular meeting.
