(e) Enrollment of Members. Every person admitted to the practice of law in South Carolina shall, within sixty (60) days after admission, register with the Secretary of the South Carolina Bar. Registration shall be made on a form provided by the South Carolina Bar.

It shall be the responsibility of all members of the Bar to promptly notify the Secretary of the South Carolina Bar, at the South Carolina Bar’s address, of any change of address. The member's address which is on file with the South Carolina Bar shall be the address which is used for all purposes of notifying and serving the member.

For purposes of this section, member address information shall include the current e-mail address for any member wishing to practice in the Unified Court System.
