Fast Track Jury Trials are here! By Administrative Order of the Supreme Court dated March 7, 2013, South Carolina litigants may now elect to try civil cases in Common Pleas through the use of Fast Track Jury Trials. These trials have a number of special characteristics involving everything from the use of Hearing Officers, to trial scheduling, witnesses, evidence, amount of time allotted for trial, rules regarding the rights of parties to appeal, offers and demands, case presentation and the trial record. On June 7, the South Carolina Bar CLE Division is pleased to present you with a unique opportunity to learn the nuts and bolts of Fast Track Jury Trials and see a Fast Track Jury Trial Demonstration. Do short, date certain trials appeal to you and your clients? Do you want to expand your career interests as a hearing officer? Should your associates be battle tested? Learning how to use the Fast Track Jury Trial system now is essential. Course Planner Brad Waring has brought together a distinguished faculty of judges and practitioners including Chief Justice Jean Hoefer Toal, Circuit Judges Edward W. Miller and Stephanie P. McDonald, Elizabeth Van Doren Gray, Carl L. Solomon, Samuel R. Clawson, John Hamilton Smith and Paul B. Wickensimer who will lead you through the history and process of Fast Track Jury Trials, answer your questions, and position you to take advantage of this new system whether as an advocate or Hearing Officer.

Charleston or York Technical College in Rock Hill, or by individual Live Webcast on June 7 and get the “inside scoop” on how Fast Track Jury Trials will work and how you can take advantage of them!
