South Carolina Court Administration
The State Constitution provides that the Chief Justice is the administrative head of the state judicial system. Court Administration was established in 1973 to aid the Chief Justice in the administration of the state judicial system. This office has a wide range of responsibilities and duties, which include recommending to the Chief Justice schedules of terms for circuit and family court, assigning judges to preside over these terms, and scheduling and supervising the court reporters who transcribe the proceedings. Court Administration provides assistance to individual courts on procedural matters.
