About the Publication-Coming Soon to the CLE Division
South Carolina Civil Procedure, Fourth Edition by Professor James F. Flanagan, Professor Joel Samuels, Associate Dean Colin Miller and Supreme Court Disciplinary Counsel John S. Nichols.
 
For the first time ever, this book is being published in two volumes due to its length. Volume I covers rules 1-37, while Volume II covers the remaining rules as well as subject matter jurisdiction, personal jurisdiction, venue, and res judicata. Thus, Volume I addresses the rules that cover pleadings, parties and discovery, while Volume II addresses the rules that cover trials, judgment, remedies, appeals, clerks and general provisions, with the final four chapters (not linked to specific rules) covering general applicable information.
 
South Carolina Civil Procedure is logically organized, thorough, and comprehensive. The authors provide unerring guidance on our rules of civil procedure through detailed and thoughtful analysis, pinpoint citations to authority, and always with an emphasis on practical application for the busy practitioner.
