We credit a large part of the versatility of a Carolina Law degree to the caliber of our faculty, who create unique learning opportunities and ensure our students graduate as confident and well-rounded lawyers. After earning both his undergraduate and law degree at Carolina, Rick Magee ’83 went on to rise high in his firm and then become in-house counsel. With 34 years of experience as an attorney, Magee returned to Carolina Law in the fall of 2017 to teach a new course called Exploring the Role of In-House Counsel. In this course, students will learn the critical skills needed to serve as in-house lawyers from experienced lawyers in these positions. As more and more law students are choosing to join firms upon graduation, courses like this are giving them the chance to explore different career options.
