Chelsea Evans Makes Her Mark at USC School of Law

June 27, 2018

Chelsea Evans, a 2018 graduate from the University of South Carolina School of Law, was the first African-American to serve as editor-in-chief of the South Carolina Law Review. For the summer 2018 cover story of The Fine Print, the law school's alumni magazine, Evans interviewed I.S. Leevy Johnson. Johnson was the first African-American graduate since Reconstruction to complete all three years of law school at USC. Their conversation covered topics including race and racism, and the transcendence of success. Read "Trailblazers" here.

Evans also recently received a Compleat Lawyer Award, which honors USC School of Law alumni and students who have made significant contributions to the legal profession and exemplify the highest standards of professional competence, ethics and integrity. 

We look forward to welcoming "trailblazer" Chelsea Evans as an associate next fall after a clerkship with Chief Justice Donald W. Beatty of the South Carolina Supreme Court.
