With more than 700 pages, the Fifth Edition includes two new chapters (Payment of Wages Act Violations and Seduction) and breaks down 50 of the most common South Carolina civil causes of action into their component parts. Chapters are organized alphabetically by cause of action and are heavily annotated with pertinent citations to controlling authority, so that what you get is the very essence of current South Carolina law in a concise and convenient format which will save you hours of research time. As a special bonus, you will receive a CD containing sample pleadings for bad faith (Tyger River and first party benefits), breach of contract and auto wreck cases. These are just some of the causes of action covered in the text.
