Alternatively Delivered Programming (ADM): what is it?
Alternatively Delivered Programming (i.e., live individual webcasts, individual On-Demand programs, and individual live and replay teleseminars) affords you the convenience to earn CLE credit from your office, your home or anywhere you have access to the internet or telephone. Alternatively Delivered Programming is defined by the South Carolina Supreme Court on CLE & Specialization as any programming that is delivered via telephone or internet to individual Bar Members (i.e., not those attending a program in a group setting at a remote satellite location such as Buck Mickel Center, Charleston School of Law, etc.)

These hours may come in any increment and may cover any type of credit required or allowed. Hours earned via Alternatively Delivered Programming may not be “banked” to the next reporting period.
