Abstract: Given $ C$ a closed convex set spanning the real Banach space $ X$ and $ x_0$ a boundary point of $ C$, this article proves that the two following statements are equivalent: (i) any lower semi-continuous convex function $ f:C\to \mathbb{R}$ is continuous at $ x_0$, and (ii) at $ x_0$, $ C$ is Maserick polyhedral; that is, $ C$ is locally the intersection of a finite family of closed half-spaces.
