In 1999, a scholarship was established at the University of South Carolina School of Law to honor our late founding partner. The Luther M. Lee Scholarship is awarded annually to a 3rd year law student who demonstrates a significant interest in plaintiff’s trial practice and financial need. Mr. Lee was a 1950 graduate of the School of Law and a self-described "plaintiff’s lawyer.” He served as an early officer in the South Carolina Trial Lawyers Association.
