Pre-Registration for Electronic Filing in the Appellate Courts

The Hawaii Supreme Court and the Hawaii Intermediate Court of Appeals will introduce electronic filing in the appellate courts in the near future. August 23, 2010 is the tentative implementation date.  Facilitated training will be offered before implementation.

In the meantime, the following may pre-register for electronic filing access:

  • individual Hawaii attorneys,
  • Hawaii law firms, and
  • any self-represented party with an active case in the Hawaii Supreme Court or the Hawaii Intermediate Court of Appeals.


A Hawaii attorney whose status is “active," "active-government," "active-emeritus," or "active-judge" may register for electronic filing.  However, attorneys admitted pro hac vice may not register for electronic filing and must file through registered-associated local counsel.

If you have questions, please email scco@courts.state.hi.us or call the Office of the Clerk at 539-4919.

Pre-registration is free.  If you would like to pre-register click here.
