The forms that you will need to access information on eCourt are contained in the links below.
If you and other members of your firm require eCourt access to access historical information in any matters you are involved in, you should advise the registry of your role in the proceedings and provide reasons for requiring access. If the Registrar is satisfied that it is appropriate to give you access to the eCourt file, an officer of the Court will action your request and you will receive a confirmation email to confirm when this activation process has taken place.
Once you have been granted the initial access to a matter by a member of the Court staff, you will be able to grant equivalent access to other people, for example, other lawyers in your firm, so long as those persons have their own User ID and account. You will need to login to the matter, select the ‘parties’ option from the toolbar, and type in the person’s User ID. You may also delete existing User ID’s (for instance, when a solicitor leaves the firm) from the ‘parties’ list in the same way.
Your eCourt account is an 'individual user' account and will travel with you even if you move to a new firm. You should however remove your access to cases in which you are no longer involved. To do this open the eFiles in question and select the 'parties' tag. Scroll down the page to the bottom to the 'Change Privileges of Existing Parties', find your account name in the drop down field and select 'none' to remove all access privileges. If you have any further questions, please contact a member of the client services staff in the Court registry.
Parties using eCourt are advised to read the relevant sections of the eCourt User Manual carefully.
