The South Carolina Supreme Court’s Bridge the Gap program, a two-day seminar, is a requirement for admission to practice law in South Carolina. Most newly admitted S.C. Bar members, during their first full MCLE cycle will also be required to attend one of the South Carolina Bar’s “Essential Series” programs.

The “Essentials Series” is comprised of 11 full day courses that will cover major South Carolina practice areas, as well as law office technology. Each course is lead by experienced South Carolina practitioners whose goal is to provide you with practical advice on how to handle cases in designated areas. The courses are process oriented, not substantive law oriented, they are specifically designed to provide you with step-by-step guidance and the opportunity to interact with the faculty.

In order to promote maximum interactivity, the courses will be offered only at the S.C. Bar Conference Center in Columbia and are only open to attorneys who have this requirement. Each course will include detailed materials, with heavy emphasis on forms and checklists. Many courses will offer discounts on S.C. Bar books and software related to the practice area.
Each course is limited to a maximum of 100 attendees. Register early to secure a spot for a particular course or courses!

If you have any questions about your requirement to participate in the series or questions about any of the individual courses, please contact S.C. Bar—CLE Director Terry Burnett at tburnett@scbar.org or 803-576-3780.
