About the Seminar
2018 has been a very busy and controversial year at the US Supreme Court - but never fear! Charleston School of Law Professor Miller Shealy will make sense of all of the Court's most important decisions! As always, Jill Rothstein will serve as our host and will “tee up” the tough questions for Miller to take a swing at! Don't just read the Court's Opinions (which is not CLE!) - tune in and hear what really counts - Miller's opinions about the Court's Opinions (which is CLE!).
