RE: Amendment to Rule 33 of Rule 413, SCACR
Effective September 1, 2003, this Court made extensive amendments to Rule 402, SCACR, relating to admission to practice law. Unfortunately, Rule 413, SCACR, was not amended to reflect the changes made to Rule 402.
Accordingly, pursuant to Article V, § 4, of the South Carolina Constitution, the first sentence of Rule 33(f)(8) of the Rules of Lawyer Disciplinary Enforcement contained in Rule 413, SCACR, is amended to read: "If disbarred or indefinitely suspended, the lawyer has successfully completed the examinations and training required by Rule 402(c)(5), (6) and (8), SCACR." This amendment is retroactive to September 1, 2003.
