Legal Business as Usual | New! MN Court Records Online

Event Description

Legal Business as Usual is our bi-weekly legal news webcast. We log in as early as 7:30 and the 'formal' interview begins at 8 am. We typically wrap between 8:45 and 9 am.

On March 17, the courts made a major shift in how they provide access to public court documents. Through a new application, Minnesota Court Records Online (MCRO), attorneys, the media and the public will now have the ability to search and retrieve certain public court documents without having to go to a courthouse.

We'll take a closer look at MCRO and demonstrate how to use the service with live walk-throughs of specific use cases including basic case lookup, legal research, and more.
