Text Search

Enter the text to search for and click Search to get a list of statutes containing the text you entered. Tips:
  • Multiple words will be searched as a phrase. Entering Property Tax will return statutes that contain the complete phrase Property Tax.
  • Logical Operators are allowed. Hunting and Fishing will return statutes that containing both hunting and fishing. Hunting or Fishing will return statutes that contain hunting, fishing, or both.
  • Wild cards(*) are allowed. Entering Approp* will return statutes that contain Appropriation, Appropriate, Appropriated, etc..
  • Punctuation can also be used as operators. + = and, , = or. Searching for phrases that have , and will result in error unless you enclose the entire phrase in quotes.
The Filter option allows you to narrow your search results to a specific Title or Chapter. Here is a tip for using the filter option.
  • Use a dash (-) as the last character of your filter to refine searches. For example the filter "1-1" returns sections in 1-1, 1-10, 1-11, 1-12, etc. The filter "1-1-" returns only sections in Chapter 1-1.

     16-18-34.5.   Application by disqualified persons--Requirements--Hearing--Burden of proof. The application by a person disqualified under § 16-18-34.4 must establish the applicant's good moral character, competency, education, training, or experience in the legal system, substantive and procedural law, and the Rules of Professional Conduct, and the ability to comply with the ethical considerations of § 16-18-34.3.
     The applicant shall have the burden of demonstrating by clear and convincing evidence that the applicant has the moral and ethical qualifications, competency and learning in law required to act as a legal assistant in this state and that acting as a legal assistant within the state will not be detrimental to the integrity and standing of the bar or the administration of justice, or subversive of the public interest.
     The Supreme Court may act upon the application or, where no recommendations have been made under § 16-18-34.7, refer the application to the Disciplinary Board if the applicant was an attorney or to a circuit judge for testimony, findings, and recommendations. The cost of such hearing will be paid as provided by § 16-19-70.1.
     The Supreme Court may deny the application if it finds approval would be detrimental to the integrity and standing of the bar or the administration of justice or subversive of the public interest. If the applicant has met the burden of proof, the Supreme Court may grant the application and impose such restrictions or conditions upon the employment and supervision of legal assistants as the court deems appropriate for the protection of the public.
