ECF Registration and Training for Attorneys

The court requires all filers to use the CM/ECF Electronic Case Filing system (ECF). Attorneys are required to be admitted to the bar of the U.S. District Court for the Central District of Illinois before practicing in this court.

Attorneys are required to complete mandatory ECF training before being issued an ECF account in this court. However, attorneys who possess an active ECF account in at least one other Bankruptcy court may waive this training requirement on the pages to follow.
