Except as otherwise provided in these rules, the South Carolina Rules of Evidence applicable to non-jury civil proceedings and the South Carolina Rules of Civil Procedure apply in lawyer discipline cases following the filing of formal charges, incapacity cases, and proceedings to determine whether a lawyer is unable to participate in a disciplinary investigation or assist in the defense of formal proceedings due to a physical or mental condition. The right to discovery, however, applies only after formal charges have been filed and shall be limited to that provided by Rule 25.

Last amended by Order dated October 23, 2019.
