Some Practical Ethics Hints
From Ethics Advisory Comte.
The Ethics Advisory Committee of the South Carolina liar
exists to render advisory opinions to members of the Bir on
Iheir own prospective practice as it may be nffected icy the
Cdile cit Professional Responsibility. (See Ethics Opinions
column heading elsewhere in Ihis issue).
As a further service, from time to time, excerpts from ile
Code of Professional Iesponsibility will be printed in The
Trusisertti sic tht lawyers may have a working familicrity
with the requirements cif tie Code.
The Cde of Professional Respocsibility as it applies ii?
South Carolina Is found in Rule32 oflheSupremeCourt Rules
of Practice. These Bules are published In the South Carolina
Court Register. the Code of L.aws of South Carolina, 1976
(Volume 22), and The L.awyers' D)esk Book.
Additionally, the American Bar Association's Model Code
of irufessianal Responsibility is found in publications such
as Martindale-flubbell or in an annotated pamphlet
distributed by the American Bar Association. Care should be
exercised icc referring to the ABA Model Code as the South
Curolina version differs slightly and, of course, our Rule 32
would be controlling.
L.istled under tlce various Canons, there are Ethical
Considerations which are precepts of aspiratilnal behavior
and Disciplinary Rules which are in the nature of minimal
slandards or prohibitions.
Tile topic for consideration this ronth Is Canon 7.
particularly Iisciplinary Rule 7-107, concerning trial
publicity.
)iscillinary 4ules 7-107 (A) and (B) limit the public
stltents a lawyer may make concerning the prosecution of
ii criminal matter and Disciplinary Rule 7-107 (G) relates tle
sane to civil matters. Inasmuch us the rules under Canon 7
are lengthy and detailed, a review thereof is recommended.

Bar's House Of
Delegates Favors
Appellate Court
Ilh South Carolina Bar's
House of Delegates on
Iccember 11, 1980 adopted a
resolution calling for tile
creation of an intermediate
appellate court.

lions for an internmediate
appellate court by the Board
of Governors, the Judicial
Modernization  Committee

Jia Iell of Columbia.
The resolution. which was
adopted at the recent Mid-
Year Meeting, calls for a
court with jurisdiction over
civil und criminal cases.
Aa adopted, tie resolution
provided:
WIIEIREAS. the volunle
ot appeals to the Supreme
Court of South Carolina has
increase(] tremendously,
resulting in ai backlog of
pending cases, ani
