New Year, New Rules

EFiling becomes mandatory in Cook County state trial courts (e.g. Daley Center) on January 1, 2018. The Clerk of the Circuit Court of Cook County has created pre-recorded training videos and an End User Guide in .pdf format. In addition, four In Person Training Sessions are available each weekday. Please take advantage of these resources in order to familiarize yourself with eFiling procedures. Find them at the Clerk’s website: cookcountyclerkofcourt.org

If you still need help, CVLS staff can help you eFile. However, every attorney who files in Cook County must first register. CVLS can also help with document preparation and scanning, although you can access and complete many court forms online using the fillable .pdf files on the Clerk’s website.

Keep your eye out for a page coming to cvls.org with information and links.
