Prepare Yourself for Mandatory E-Filing

Effective Jan. 1, 2018, electronic filing in civil cases will be mandatory across Illinois. As "E-Day" rapidly approaches, it is important to be prepared for the continued migration of the state's court system to an electronic filing based platform. Practice HQ's dedicated e-filing page hosts the resources every Illinois attorney needs to arm themselves with knowledge and ensure a smooth transition. With Practice HQ, you can...

Get a broad overview.

Use your free online CLE benefit to watch E-Filing in Illinois and read the June Illinois Bar Journal cover story, Countdown to Mandatory E-Filing, for an overview of Illinois' transition to a statewide electronic filing system, from how e-filing works, to what an electronic filing service provider (EFSP) does, to where to turn for support when using the eFileIL system.

Select the right EFSP for you.

Attorneys and firms rely on EFSPs to file their documents and conduct business. To understand what these providers offer and select the services that fit your needs, review the Comparison Chart of Certified E-Filing Service Providers (EFSPs) and read the November Illinois Bar Journal cover story, Choosing an E-Filing Service Provider.

Learn How to Create and Use PDFs.

Understanding how to use PDF software is essential to e-filing. Practice HQ hosts videos and free online CLE designed to help you master the most common PDF programs, as well as a Comparison Chart of PDF Programs to help you find the functionality you need at the price point that's right for you. 

Practice HQ's e-filing resources are available in one convenient microsite, and updated regularly as new guides, articles, and Illinois Supreme Court rule amendments become available. With it, Illinois lawyers can be confident as E-Day approaches.
