What you'll learn

Learn how to improve state court forms from national experts. Six substantive topics will cover:

  • Work through tricky issues related to forms creation and revision

Who should register?

Judges, clerks, AOC staff, court staff, forms committee members, court interpreter and language services staff, help center staff, forms developers, legal services providers or others interested in plain language writing for self-represented litigants.
