Business Law:  

SC Statutes and Local Ordinances

SC Code of Laws

Local ordinances often regulate business licenses and other requirements. These two databases contain the code of ordinances for most parts of South Carolina:

If you can't find the code of ordinances for your local area in the databases above, try the website of your town, city, or county.

Search for Cases on Business Law

A public library, technical college, or university near you might provide public access to Westlaw or Nexis Uni. This can help your case law search mainly because Westlaw or Nexis Uni will provide a flag or signal indicating if a case has been overturned (Google Scholar will not indicate this). Also look for case law search resources at these law libraries.

Your Public Library

Ask if your public library offers the Gale LegalForms database.

LegalForms contains state-specific forms and documents in Word or Adobe format that can be edited to suit users' needs by filling in the blanks with relevant and accurate information.

LegalForms includes forms for incorporating a business, forming an LLC, and more.
