The University of South Carolina Law Library joins with President Caslen in mourning the horrific killing of George Floyd at the hands of a police officer, as well as the deaths of Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, and more.
President Caslen has called on all of us to educate ourselves about the harmful impact of racism in all of its manifestations.
To that end, we share the following online resources, available remotely while the law library is closed:
