Distance Learning: What is it?
Distance Learning is defined by the South Carolina Supreme Court on CLE & Specilization as alternatively delivered programming.  This mean any programming that is web or telephone based and is delivered by these media to individual Bar Members.

Distance Learning: What are the Rules and Limitations?
Click
here for a complete set of rules for alternatively delivered programming.

Supreme Court Commission on CLE rules allow SC Bar members to use “alternatively delivered programming” (i.e., telephone or Internet-based programming) to obtain up to 6.0 hours of MCLE each reporting period. These hours may come in any increment and may cover any type of credit required or allowed.  Hours earned via alternatively delivered programming may not be “banked” to the next reporting period.

Commission on CLE Rules require that each “live” or “on-demand” Internet-based (online) program must include a mechanism that will track attendance. SC Bar-CLE online programs include automated “checkpoints”which require the viewer to click on an on-screen prompt in order to verify continued participation. Each SC Bar CLE on-demand or live webcast program will include 4 (four)”checkpoint” prompts. These prompts will cover your screen and remain visible for 90 (ninety) seconds. You must click on EACH prompt in order to receive full credit for the program you are viewing.
