eCourts Training is Here!

By Matt Van Sickle

Hello Litigation Section Members. I am honored to serve the Litigation Section as Chair for the 2022-23 Bar Year, and will provide a roadmap for the coming year in another post.

The purpose of today’s post is to let you know the Administrative Office of the Courts has released the schedule for the initial rounds of eCourts training, taking place in September. There will be virtual options, and in-person training will take place in Cary and Lillington. If you have not kept up with the eCourts program, the four pilot counties for the program are Harnett, Johnston, Lee, and Wake. Once the program is live, all attorneys will have to use the eCourts File & Serve system for filings in those counties. The training announcement from the Administrative Office of the Courts can be accessed here.

Although we do not currently have a firm date for eCourts to go live, it is anticipated that the pilot counties will likely go live this fall.

In addition to the AOC’s training, on September 15, 2022, the Litigation Section is hosting a CLE that will include a one-hour presentation from the AOC concerning eCourts. We encourage our members to take advantage of both the AOC’s training and the CLE.
