The South Carolina Bar began in 1884 as the South Carolina Bar Association, a voluntary organization of approximately 200 lawyers. The South Carolina State Bar was created in 1968. The two organizations were merged in 1975. Currently the Bar has a membership of more than 14,500. The Bar staff is divided into seven divisions: Communications, Continuing Legal Education, Finance, Law Related Education, Membership Services, Public Services and Media and Technology.

    If you've been looking for a DUI seminar that gets you beyond abstract theory of law and digs down into the real world of practical, useful hands-on information, "You Can Get There from Here: A Roadmap to a Successful DUI Practice" is the program you've been waiting for. After all, the goal of practicing law is to win cases and the way to win cases is the practical application of knowledge, strategy, and technique.
     
    Ronnie Cole has been trying and winning DUI cases for more than thirty years. He and the co-authors of the brand new Handling Traffic Cases in South Carolina, Fifth Edition have put together a book and a seminar that don't just play around the edges of DUI legal theory, they teach you in plain language how to use your knowledge as a lawyer to develop the skills, techniques, strategy and tips to win cases. This important program is focused on a practical and uncompromising analysis of the latest in prosecution and defense strategy including cutting edge issues like sleep driving, the collateral damage of a DUI arrest or conviction, coercion and cross-examination in field sobriety testing, Data Master and toxicology, prosecution and defense ethics, a practical review of the latest appellate cases, and a panel discussion that invites your questions and participation. Finally, for the first time ever, this powerful seminar features keen insights on DUI cases from the arresting officer's perspective. 

    This is perhaps the most important DUI program the Bar has ever offered and you will leave this seminar with practical new knowledge.

    Commission Rules on Checkpoints and Attendance?

    Commission on CLE Rules require that each "live" or "on-demand" Internet-based (online) program must include a mechanism that will track attendance. SC Bar-CLE online programs include automated "checkpoints" which require the viewer to click on an on-screen prompt in order to verify continued participation. Each SC Bar CLE on-demand or live webcast program will include 4 (four) "checkpoint" prompts. These prompts will cover your screen and remain visible for 60 (sixty) seconds. You must click on EACH prompt in order to receive full credit for the program you are viewing.
    How is my Attendance Reported?

    Once you complete the program (viewing the video to the end and hitting all of the checkpoints), you may submit for CLE credit. Simply access your Education Credit Profile and click the “Submit Credit” button to the right of the program title you are submitting for. You will be asked to take part in an evaluation survey. Following that, you will electronically sign your name and click “Submit”. Be sure to print the certificate of completion to keep in your records. Your completion is automatically recorded for reporting to the South Carolina Commission on CLE and Specialization. If you need credit for another state, please contact Jane Points at jpoints@scbar.org or call 803-576-3828.
