NYCLA Seminar Will Offer Advice On Electronic Bankruptcy Filings

Tuesday, April 1, 2008 - 01:00

The New York County Lawyers' Association (NYCLA) has scheduled a CLE seminar titled Bankruptcy Court Electronic Case Filing System.

The program will take place on Wednesday, April 16 from 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at the NYCLA Home of Law, 14 Vesey Street, New York City.

The judiciary-developed Electronic Case Filing System (ECFS) enables attorneys and litigants to submit pleadings and corresponding docket entries to the court via the Internet, thereby eliminating paper handling and processing time. It also permits any interested party instantaneous access to the entire official case docket and documents on select civil and bankruptcy cases within certain jurisdictions. This newly updated training class is designed to enable attorneys to use ECFS effectively.

The instructor is Kevin J. Woodhouse, special projects manager, U.S. Bankruptcy Court, Southern District of New York.
