The Transition to eFiling

The Transition to eFiling

The Office of State Courts Administrator (OSCA) reports that 26 new counties will be implementing electronic filing, or eFiling, this year.  While the Supreme Court and the Court of Appeals have been eFiling for just over two years and about a year, respectively, eFiling at the Circuit court level will be fairly new to the vast majority of us who do most of our work there. The evolution to eFiling should be especially easy to young lawyers, who are statistically more proficient with technology.  However, on the other hand, it can seem very daunting to change the way we have learned to do things, especially given that we were just starting to figure out how to do them in the first place.
