Rule 403 Modified

For years now, the Rule 403 requirement for admission to the bar has been a pain for SC lawyers. One could sit in the court house for days watching cases settle and getting none of the required trial experience. Well, the Supreme Court has taken action to reduce the number of trials new lawyers have to watch and to permit those who have trial experience from out-of-state to count these toward the Rule 403 requirements.

The new rule can be found here.

It's probably a good idea to modify the rule. However, I just cannot help but think if I had to go through that pain, so should the new lawyers.
