The S.C. Bankruptcy Practice Manual, Revised Second Edition (2012) discusses the basic tenets of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code and features helpful practice tips specifically tailored for practice in South Carolina. This helpful how-to manual also includes a user-friendly CD containing the entire book with hypertext links to local and official rules.

Valuable resource of the week
Pattern Jury Instructions for Federal Criminal Cases, District of S.C.
The Fourth Circuit does not have pattern jury instructions formulated by committees of judges and practitioners and approved by the circuit for use in criminal cases. The purpose of this work is to fill that void by publishing pattern instructions annotated primarily by reference to Fourth Circuit and Supreme Court cases. This incredible resource contains more than 740 pages of substantive text and instructions and is organized in six sections to reflect the order in which jury instructions are generally given.
