Chief Justice’s Commission on the Profession

Lawyer Mentoring Second Pilot Program


By Order dated December 2, 2008 and amended July 23, 2009, the Supreme Court of South Carolina established the Lawyer Mentoring Second Pilot Program. The goal of this program is to assist new lawyers in their transition into the legal profession and to provide them with a stronger understanding of its accompanying ethical and professional obligations and expectations. 


On this web site, you will find a copy of the Court Order establishing the program, Frequently Asked Questions, and the Uniform Mentoring Plan.  You will also find links to all forms pertinent to the Lawyer Mentoring Second Pilot Program, which can be downloaded and printed.




The need for mentors is critical. Through participation in the mentoring program, experienced lawyers are providing a great service to the Court, the legal community and the public. At the end of the one-year mentoring period, any lawyer who has served as a mentor will receive four (4) hours of MCLE credit, which includes two (2) hours of LEPR.  If you are interested in volunteering as a mentor, please contact us.
