What is Bridge the Gap?
Rule 402(c) of the South Carolina Appellate Court Rules sets forth the requirements for admission to practice law in South Carolina. Rule 402(c)(8) requires all South Carolina Bar applicants to successfully complete the Bridge the Gap program sponsored by the South Carolina Bar, under the directive of the South Carolina Supreme Court, prior to admission to practice law.
The Bridge the Gap program is a three-day (Monday-Wednesday) intensive course sanctioned by the
South Carolina Supreme Court and coordinated by the SC Bar-CLE Division. The program focuses on practical nuts and bolts skills. It is designed to assist the law student in transition from law school to the practice of law, and also the lawyer who is new to the practice of law in South Carolina.
Who should attend?
All candidates for admission to the South Carolina Bar must complete the Bridge the Gap program as set out in Rule 402(c). Bridge the Gap registrants will include current second and third year law school students, law school graduates, attorneys licensed to practice in other states, and may include inactive members of the SC Bar seeking to return to active status.* Attorneys licensed and actively practicing in South Carolina are not eligible to receive CLE credit for Bridge the Gap unless they have received special permission from the S.C. Supreme Court Commission on CLE and Specialization. *An inactive member who has practiced law in South Carolina or another jurisdiction during the immediately prior twelve months may become an active member by paying the difference in license fees if that member is current with mandatory continuing legal education (MCLE) requirements. After the first twelve months an inactive member who has completed the equivalent of the mandatory continuing legal education requirement for the preceding calendar year and who has filed a compliance statement with the Commission on CLE and Specialization and paid the filing fee may become an active member upon payment of the difference in license fees.
