South Carolina Code of Laws
The South Carolina Legislative Council is offering access to the 1976 South Carolina Code of Laws on the Internet as a service to the public. The 1976 South Carolina Code on the General Assembly's website is now current through Act Number 147 of the 2016 Session of the General Assembly. The 1976 Code of Laws on this website will be updated online periodically; however, the official version of the 1976 Code of Laws remains the print version which will continue to be updated on a yearly basis before the start of each legislative session. The 1976 South Carolina Code, consisting only of Code text, numbering, history, and Effect of Amendment, Editor's, and Code Commissionerís notes may be copied from this website at the reader's expense and effort without need for permission.
The Legislative Council is unable to assist users of this service with legal questions. Also, legislative staff cannot respond to requests for legal advice or the application of the law to specific facts. Therefore, to understand and protect your legal rights, you should consult your own private lawyer regarding all legal questions.
While every effort was made to ensure the accuracy and completeness of the South Carolina Code available on the South Carolina General Assembly's website, this version of the South Carolina Code is not official, and the state agencies preparing this website and the General Assembly are not responsible for any errors or omissions which may occur in these files. Only the current published volumes of the South Carolina Code of Laws Annotated and any pertinent acts and joint resolutions contain the official version.
Please note that the Legislative Council is not able to respond to individual inquiries regarding research or the features, format, or use of this website. However, you may notify the Legislative Services Agency at LSA@scstatehouse.gov regarding any apparent errors or omissions in content of Code sections on this website, in which case LSA will relay the information to appropriate staff members of the South Carolina Legislative Council for investigation.
