An eligible law student, who is enrolled in the University of South Carolina School of Law or the Charleston School of Law, and has completed the equivalent of four (4) semesters of legal studies, may appear in any inferior court or before any administrative tribunal on behalf of any indigent person, or on behalf of the State or any of its departments, agencies, institutions, or political subdivisions. If referred to the clinical legal education program by a state or federal court, department, agency, institution, or other department of the University of South Carolina School of Law or the Charleston School of Law, an eligible law student may also appear in an inferior court or before an administrative tribunal on behalf of a non-indigent person or non-profit organization. In all cases, a supervising lawyer is required to be personally present throughout the proceeding.

An eligible law student may engage in other activities, under a lawyer’s general supervision, but outside the lawyer’s presence.
