Don’t be caught unprepared! - Learn how to use eFileIL now!

Every Illinois attorney who practices civil law will soon be required to use eFileIL, a statewide electronic filing system. On July 1, 2017, eFileIL will become mandatory for civil cases in the Illinois Supreme and Appellate Court and, effective January 1, 2018, for civil cases in most circuit courts. Some circuit courts have already implemented this system and are ready to go.  For a smooth transition that will allow you to continue to serve your clients effectively, come to this seminar and learn how to use eFileIL and get the answers to questions like: 

  • How does e-filing work?
  • What is an EFSP?
  • Is e-filing secure?
  • How do I serve other individuals with my e-filed documents?
  • Can I use e-service without filing a document with the court?
  • Is there a fee to use eFileIL?
  • What is the convenience fee?
  • Is e-filing mandatory for my court?
  • What types of cases can I e-file using eFileIL?
  • Are there types of cases that I cannot file using eFileIL?
  • When can I use eFileIL?
  • How do I know whether a county has implemented the new system?
  • Can I use eFileIL if I am pro per or pro se?
  • What if the filing code that I am looking for is not an option in eFileIL?
  • Must I register to use eFileIL?
  • Is support available for the eFileIL system?
  • Is training available for using eFileIL?
