Alternatively Delivered Programming: What is it?
Alternatively Delivered Programming (i.e., live individual webcasts, individual On-Demand programs, and individual live and replay teleseminars) affords you the convenience to earn CLE credit from your office, your home or anywhere you have access to the internet or telephone. Alternatively Delivered Programming is defined by the South Carolina Supreme Court on CLE & Specialization as any programming that is delivered via telephone or internet to individual Bar Members (i.e., not those attending a program in a group setting at a remote satellite location such as Buck Mickel Center, Charleston School of Law, etc.)
What are the Rules and Limitations?

Supreme Court Commission on CLE rules allow SC Bar members to use Alternatively Delivered programming (i.e., telephone or internet based programming) to obtain up to (as of May 1st, 2019) 8.0 hours of MCLE each reporting period. These hours may come in any increment and may cover any type of credit required or allowed. Hours earned via Alternatively Delivered Programming may not be “banked” to the next reporting period.
South Carolina Commission on CLE and Specialization Rules require that each “live webcast” or “On-Demand” internet based (online) program must include a mechanism that will track attendance. SC Bar-CLE online programs include automated “checkpoint(s)” which require the viewer to click on an ON-SCREEN PROMPT (mere listening does not qualify and if you miss a prompt your participation will not be verified). Each SC Bar-CLE On-Demand or live webcast program will include “checkpoint(s)” prompts. These prompts will cover your screen and remain visible for 90 (ninety) seconds. You must click on EACH prompt in order to receive full credit for the program you are viewing.
Live and Replay Teleseminars: What are they?
Telephone based programs conveniently offered generally during the lunch hour. Teleseminars are your "Hotline" to the latest legal updates connecting you with leading practitioners from across the country. Electronic materials are delivered via email. Programs include real-time Q&A with the faculty. Running time is generally one hour, although some can be as long as 90 minutes. Participate by landline or mobile phone. You must provide an email address to receive the call-in number, instructions and electronic materials. For more information on these offerings, click here. Teleseminars are hosted by WebCredenza and must be purchased by creating then logging into your WebCredenza account, rather than through your Bar Member login or AIS credentials.
