Your Local Library

Your local public, technical college, or university library may have the South Carolina Code Annotated in print and books on legal topics.  Some public libraries in South Carolina provide its patrons with access to Westlaw. Check with your college or university for access to NexisUni. Both electronic databases allow you to search state and federal laws and read about specific topics in legal encyclopedias and journals.
