Cook County eFiling roundtable: Join One Legal and more

round table

***Update 4/10/18: The date and price of this event have been changed by Cook County. These changes are reflected below.***

One Legal’s Alex Braun will join Chicago Daily Law Bulletin editor Marc Karlinsky and Circuit Court Clerk Dorothy Brown to answer questions about Cook County’s new eFiling system at a public question-and-answer session later this month.

Karlinksy will moderate the panel discussion, “E-Filing in Illinois: Where Do We Go From Here?”, from 8-10 a.m. Tuesday, May 15 at the University Club of Chicago. The event, co-sponsored by Law Bulletin Media and the Cook County Clerk’s Office, will give Chicago law firms an opportunity to learn and ask questions about eFileIL—the common eFiling platform that is being adopted by every court in Illinois—just days before its rollout for all civil case types in Cook County.

The programming will focus particularly on the new concept of eFiling service providers (EFSPs), which allow law firms to file civil cases across county lines from one interface.

For those unable to attend in person, the exchange will also be documented in Law Bulletin Media’s two Chicago-area publications, Chicago Daily Law Bulletin and Chicago Lawyer.

What’s an EFSP?

An eFiling service provider, or EFSP, is an online portal that allows you to file civil cases in multiple counties. By this summer, using an EFSP will allow you to file civil cases in every Illinois court except the Circuit Court of DuPage County (which has until 2019 to join the eFileIL system).

Unlike Cook County’s first-generation eFiling system, which was accessed through a portal on the clerk’s website, eFileIL lets filers choose their own portal for filing in any court in Illinois. Each EFSP comes with a unique set of capabilities, support and per-filing pricing.

The Illinois Supreme Court website maintains a comparison chart of certified EFSPs–including One Legal–on its website, so filers can evaluate which one best meets their needs.
