Take a test drive of ECF on the web site of the U. S. Bankruptcy Court for the Eastern District of Virginia.  This interactive tutorial will give you a quick overview of CM/ECF and walk you through filing various types of documents.  The names of division and counties are different of course, and the CM/ECF software as configured by this Court is different in some relatively minor respects.  But overall, this tutorial will give you a an accurate feel of  what it is like to use ECF.  The team that prepared this tutorial was led by Jim Buchanan at the Federal Judicial Center in Washington, D.C.  CLICK HERE TO TRY OUT ECF.
