You're all set for your hearing, but now you find out the hearing is moving online. Where do you start? You may be an experienced advocate but how do you make sure your key filings and documents are where they need to be now? A new technology platform, CaseLines, is being implemented in Ontario, and our presenters can help you out because they are directly involved with this pilot project. They give you straight information about how to get done what you need to, and where to go if you have questions, even if you're brand new to digital court filing technology. Not only for your benefit, but for the witnesses you want to call — you want to know how to get your work done easily and quickly.
