Judge Alex Sanders is now a College of Charleston professor in the Department of Political Science after serving as the University’s 19th President. A man of many talents, Sanders’ job descriptions have also included Chief Judge of the SC Court of Appeals, state Legislator in the House and Senate, candidate for the US Senate, a soybean farmer, soldier, and even circus performer. As Andy Abrams, the former dean of the Charleston School of Law, told the State Newspaper in 2011: “Alex Sanders never fails to entertain, educate, and inspire.”
