Clarence Darrow

The South Carolina Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers is devoted to protecting the liberty of the citizens of South Carolina by fighting to ensure justice and due process for all persons accused of any criminal act.

We promote excellence and integrity in the practice of criminal law by providing the highest quality criminal law seminars to those who defend the accused.

We speak with a united voice in challenging legislation directed to limiting or eliminating the rights of the individual and we labor for laws that preserve equal access to justice for all.
