How do I begin using CM/ECF to file documents in the Northern District of California Bankruptcy Court?


Full access to CM/ECF is available to attorneys, and limited access is available to certain other professionals (such as approved personal financial management course providers, creditors, trustee staff, etc.). 

To obtain a login to access CM/ECF:

  • All applicants (attorneys and limited access) must either, 1) successfully complete an online webinar training course and practice assignment, or 2) request and qualify for a waiver of the webinar training course.
  • Additionally, all attorney applicants must be admitted to practice in the United States District Court for the Northern District of California in accordance with Civil Local Rule 11-1(a), 11-2 or 11-3, and return a signed Certification of Completion of Electronic Training Course to the Court.
