The “Essentials Series” is comprised of 11 full day courses that will cover major South Carolina practice areas, as well as law office technology.

In order to promote maximum interactivity, the courses will be offered only at the S.C. Bar Conference Center in Columbia. 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!
