Circuit Riders: South Carolina Regulations

Basic Legal Research Guide




When the South Carolina General Assembly (also called the South Carolina Legislature) passes a law, it may designate an existing state agency or create a new state agency to implement and enforce that law. To do this, it gives that state agency the duty and power to write rules and regulations. The official SC.GOV website includes an Agency Listing page with links to all South Carolina State agencies. 


This unit on South Carolina Regulations covers how South Carolina regulations are published and how to find, read, and update them in print and using the South Carolina Legislature website.

It ends with a video on how to search for South Carolina regulations for free in print and online.
