Locally known criminal defense and personal injury trial attorneys Adam & Kelley Young of Young & Young, Attorneys at Law, have partnered with the Charleston School of Law to become site supervisors in the law school’s first Summer Advocacy Institute. The program, which was recently initiated by the President of the law school, Ed Bell, and Professor Miller Shealy, is a skills course for eligible law students to be given a hands-on opportunity to participate in criminal litigation in South Carolina by being assigned to work with local criminal defense attorneys. As a former judge and former assistant solicitors, Kelley & Adam Young are thrilled to share their criminal law background with students at the Charleston School of Law.
Law students in the program will work with Adam & Kelley Young on criminal cases, which include everything from witness and client interviews to hearings and trials. Young & Young, Attorneys at Law is pleased to assist in this innovative program which allows students to appear on the record during court proceedings utilizing the Student Practice Rule initiated by the South Carolina Supreme Court.
Young & Young’s first student law clerk, Beverly Bolyard, has already appeared on the record with Adam & Kelley Young multiple times and will continue to do so for the duration of the program. Young & Young, Attorneys at Law constantly strives to give back to the Charleston community in a variety of ways and is loving this new opportunity to help young law students in the Charleston community develop trial preparation and advocacy skills.
