August 2012 Bar Bulletin
Summer at the Public Law Library
By Rita Dermody
One expects August to be a month of vacations, last-minute school shopping, time at the beach or pool, or hiking in the mountains. However, at the Public Law Library, life continues as usual. We will offer three of our most popular classes. One will be held in-house in our training center; the other two will be Internet-based, using WebEx.
On August 6, we will offer "Searching Washington Court Records" via WebEx. This class provides an overview of searching case information using the Washington Courts website (http://dw.courts.wa.gov/index.cfm) and retrieving court documents from King County Superior Court's ECR online service (https://dja-ecreweb.kingcounty.gov/ecronline/External/LogonPages/Logon.aspx?ReturnUrl=/ECROnline/Default.aspx) and King County District Court's DCoR case retrieval system (http://www.kingcounty.gov/courts/DistrictCourt.aspx).
On August 21, we offer "eFiling Combined," a 1½-hour class on how to use the King County Superior Court's electronic filing system. The class begins with how to navigate the eFiling site, how to set up an account, and how to begin a new case. Advance features covered include the Status tab, eWorking copies, eService and eEx-Parte via the Clerk.
On August 29, we offer "Skiptracing," also using WebEx. This class introduces you to sites on the Internet that help you find business and personal information, using free, publicly accessible databases.
Our classes are announced through our "Public Law Library of King County E-News." You may call us at any time to check on the availability of space. Both formats have a limit on the number of attendees. Call us at 206-296-0940 to reserve your place.
