Welcome to the Electronic Case Filing Tutorial

The Electronic Case Filing (ECF) Tutorial is designed for those interested in learning how to use ECF. Through guided practice, using simulated screens, you will learn how to file pleadings and other materials using ECF.

If you are a new ECF user, you should begin with 1: Orientation and continue to the end of 4: Reports. This is a self-paced tutorial: at any point you can bookmark your place and return when and where it is convenient to you. The entire tutorial will take you about one hour to complete.
