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.

  • Learn how to use online technology platforms available through the courts
  • Discover digital resources you can use to make your practice easier
  • Understand how to prepare documents for screen share or quick access with digital bookmarking and highlighting
  • Hear from key court staff on what judges want during an online hearing
  • Discuss innovative ideas for making an objection or asking a question
