CLE Deadlines are Approaching in South Carolina. Are You Ready?
February 28th is the final day for South Carolina attorneys to submit their CLE credits. Fortunately there’s still time to get the credits you need to remain in compliance. Here’s a brief reminder of what credits you need, and how to report them.
SC CLE Requirements
In South Carolina, active status attorneys must complete 14.00 CLE credits every year to maintain good standing with the South Carolina Bar.
As part of their 14.00 credits required every year, SC attorneys must complete CLE in the following topics:
- 2.00 - Legal Ethics and Professional Responsibility
- 1.00-Substance Abuse, Mental Health Issues, or Stress Management (required every two years)
A minimum of 6.00 credit hours must be taken as live programs. A maximum of 8.00 credit hours may be taken as alternatively delivered programs.

NBI will report your attendance to the South Carolina Commission on Continuing Lawyer Competency. You can check your CLE credits online at the SC CCLE website.
