Limited Capacity filling up

Use of automated forms solutions is increasingly common in self-help centers and online. The programs, developed by judicial branch attorneys and analysts, offer: 1) reduced data entry, 2) neat and accurate forms, 3) educational material, and 4) a direct link to “self-represented litigant-friendly” e-filing. This session will update you not just on the applications, but on actual court deployments courts through innovation grants, case management system deployments and other creative approaches. We will focus on Tyler Guide & File and LHI/HotDocs. As these applications become more mature, they're being adopted by an increasing number of Courts and litigants, countrywide. See what modules are available for your use today, learn about free customization for your Court, and see/hear about the latest innovations. The panel will also feature an in-depth look at an e-filing pilot in Los Angeles County serving landlords and tenants as a case study on the benefits, challenges, and lessons learned in implementing an e-filing project focused on the self-represented litigant experience.
