Fourth Annual Paralegals Seminar

Wed, 10/18/2006 - 5:00am

As previously announced, the Court will be sponsoring a seminar for paralegals and legal assistants to be held on Friday, November 3, 2006 commencing at 9:00 am in Columbia, at the United States Bankruptcy Courthouse, 1100 Laurel Street in the 3rd floor courtroom. The seminar would be expected to end around 4:00 p.m. Presentations will be made by the judges, members of the Clerk's office, United States Trustee's office, and trustees. Topics will include new CM/ECF filing requirements and suggestions to ensure the better processing of cases and pleadings. The approval of CLE credit is anticipated for attendance. Please register with Jacque Phillips by email at or telephone at 803-765-5657 no later than Friday, October 27, 2006 if you are planning on attending.

If you are unable to attend the Columbia seminar and there is sufficient interest, the Court may consider an abbreviated session (which will not include as detailed a presentation/demonstration on the new CM/ECF requirements) in Spartanburg and/or Charleston at some later date. If you would prefer to attend an abbreviated session in either of those divisional court sites, please indicate that as your first choice in your responding email. To ensure you attend some session you should register for the Columbia date if you could attend, but indicate your preference for a divisional session. A decision will be made as soon as possible after the registration date on the feasibility of separate sessions.

This is the fourth annual paralegal seminar and we hope that it will be an informative and helpful day.
