RE:Amendment to Rule 28 of Rule 413, SCACR


Effective September 1, 2003, this Court made extensive amendments to Rule 402, SCACR, relating to admission to practice law. The amendments resulted in the renumbering of various provisions of Rule 402. Rule 28 of Rule 413, SCACR, was not amended to reflect the changes made to Rule 402.

Accordingly, pursuant to Article V, 4, of the South Carolina Constitution, Rule 28(f)(5) of the Rules for Lawyer Disciplinary Enforcement contained in Rule 413, SCACR, is amended to read:

(5) Learning in Law; Examinations and Training. The Supreme Court may also direct that the lawyer establish proof of competency and learning in the law, which may include a requirement to successfully complete the examinations and training required by Rule 402(c)(5), (6), and (8), SCACR.

This amendment is retroactive to September 1, 2003.
