Client Story


Share this page
Summary
A student-led, non-partisan student organization filed a federal lawsuit against the College of Charleston for refusing to recognize it as a registered student organization. Administrators at the college claimed the South Carolina Politics Club was “too similar” to another student club on campus, but the lawsuit pointed out that the school cannot deny recognition based on perceived similarity of purpose and contended that the school’s decision was arbitrary and unjustified, resulting in unconstitutional discrimination against SCPC.
