Annotated South Carolina Rules of Professional Conduct 2010
Professor Nathan M. Crystal and Professor Robert M. Wilcox
In October 2009, the S.C. Supreme Court adopted Amendments to the Rules for Lawyer Disciplinary Enforcement. This 2010 edition includes those amendments and includes the revisions to the Overview of the Disciplinary Process. This practical, soft-cover volume contains the Rules of Professional Conduct and is thoroughly annotated with relevant case law and Ethics Advisory Opinions current through December 2009. There is also a comprehensive index, comparisons of each S.C. Rule with the corresponding Model Rule and many handy cross-references.
