Court issues order requiring Bar members to register with AIS

October 18, 2011

The Supreme Court issued an order Monday, Oct. 17, requiring all South Carolina lawyers to log on to the new SCJD Attorney Information System (AIS) to validate their contact information by November 18, 2011. Attorney contact information from AIS will be used by the South Carolina trial courts, Court of Appeals and Supreme Court to send attorney notices and court correspondence. Each attorney has a unique account that is password protected and will receive a personalized letter from Chief Justice Toal dated October 17, 2011, that contains the specific logon procedures. Please note that attorneys will be unable to renew their 2012 South Carolina Bar license without first validating their contact information in AIS at the Supreme Court.

AIS is the first step to electronic filing of court documents in South Carolina. The Bar will continue to collect and maintain Rule 608 court appointment information, including list designations and county for appointment.
