Virtual new court personnel conference

We are excited to bring you a virtual conference for new court personnel! This conference will be happening via Zoom on August 26th and 27th. Here's what you need to know about the conference:

  • Each day will start at 8:30 am and end at 4:00 pm.
  • There are 2 optional Q&A portions during lunch (12:15 pm - 1:15 pm) and after the last class (4:00 pm - 5:00 pm). During these Q&A sessions, you will have access to our attorneys to ask them whatever you want!
  • Wednesday will be covering the Training Center, legal advice, and the basics of civil.
  • Thursday you will go over residential evictions and basics of criminal.
  • Both days will have some professional development between legal topics.
  • You will need to attend the whole conference to receive credit for it, so if you mostly deal with criminal you will need to stay for the civil portions and vice versa.*
  • The virtual conference will be held using Zoom and an app called Eventsential. You can download the app on iPhone here and for Android here. A week before the conference you will receive an email from Eventsential to set up your account.
  • What you will need for this conference:
    • An internet connection
    • A Zoom account
    • A laptop/computer/phone/tablet with a microphone (and preferably a camera) so you can interact with everyone at the conference.
    • Handouts - you can have these printed or digitally (these will be available on Monday)

To register, log in to your TJCTC account, and then click "Online Registration" and then "Register Online". Select "Virtual New Court Personnel Conference" under "Court Personnel Seminar". Once your registration is submitted you will receive a confirmation letter.
