It’s official: If you practice before the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals, you must use electronic filing. This is the direction courts have been heading for years now – going completely electronic and doing away with paper filing when possible.

With the Internet, smart phones, iPads, Kindles, and other similar devices, it seems like we really could live in a world without paper, or at least much less paper than we use now.

As a practicing attorney, what are your thoughts on electronic filing? Do you prefer it over using paper documents to file?
