the real southern hot spot

Columbia, SC


In the heart of South Carolina, tradition and tomorrow pair perfectly in Columbia. It's a modern city where stately buildings buzz with new business, and centuries-old sites give rise to fresh perspectives. It's a creative hub that's fed by university and capital city communities -- all this in the midst of surrounding natural beauty. With dynamite shopping, food and tons to see and do year round, it's the real Southern hot spot that will leave you looking forward to what's next.

Join us for the 2020 Bar Convention—continuing legal education, recreation, and networking in the capital city! Take advantage of all the grand opportunities from the President’s Reception, Judicial/Legislative Reception and Plenary Luncheon. Reconnect with friends, refresh your legal knowledge, and enhance professional relationships. Plan to be with us!
