In re: Amendments to the South Carolina Appellate Court Rules


The South Carolina Bar has proposed amending Rule 401, South Carolina Appellate Court Rules, to allow students at the Charleston School of Law to appear on behalf of clients and engage in other permitted activities through clinical legal education programs at the Charleston School of Law. Currently, only students at the University of South Carolina School of Law are permitted to engage in such activities.

Because the American Bar Association’s Council of the Section of Legal Education and Admissions to the Bar has voted to grant provisional accreditation to the Charleston School of Law, we hereby adopt the amendments as set forth in the attachment to this order. The amendments are effective immediately.
