The Charleston School of Law is hosting its fourth annual “Race Judicata” on Saturday, March 20, 2010.  The 5K run/walk will begin at 8:00 a.m. downtown in Hampton Park and wind through the historic Citadel campus.

The Charleston School of Law Community Service Committee and Juris One Sports Law Organization are dedicated to fostering the importance of philanthropy and fulfilling the Charleston School of Law’s mission of public service within the local community. Attorneys and judges will join together with professors and students to raise awareness and funds for the SC Community Loan Fund.

A number of law schools and legal organizations across the country hold community-wide fundraisers under the name “Race Judicata” by hosting an event, usually a 5k run/walk, in the name of a beneficiary charitable organization.  Race Judicata derives its name from a legal term of art, Res Judicata (Latin for “a matter [already] judged”), which is used to describe a doctrine where courts may avoid relitigation of matters previously and finally adjudicated.

The Charleston School of Law has developed a tremendously successful event in the Charleston community since its inaugural 5k in 2007. In only three years, Charleston’s Race Judicata has involved over 600 participants and donated over $30,000 to the SC Community Loan Fund.

The SC Community Loan Fund, Inc. (CLF) is a regional advocate for affordable housing.  CLF is a 501(c) 3 non-profit organization established to provide a dedicated ongoing source of funding for the production and preservation of affordable housing, and to actively work to encourage and implement policies that reduce unnecessary regulatory barriers to such production in Berkeley, Charleston, and Dorchester counties.
