Obtaining an ECF Login and Password
ECF Attorney Filers and
Pro Hac Vice
Attorneys have several options in obtaining a Login and Password for
filing in our
Case Filing system. The first method is to complete our on-line computer
based training (CBT) program. The training takes approximately 60 minutes to finish
and it must be completed in one session. No special software is required for the
CBT and it may be taken at your convenience. Although not required, non-attorney
filers are also encouraged to complete the CBT. To access our CBT, click the hyperlink
