The Los Angeles County Court Reporters Association has earned a well-deserved reputation for sponsoring stimulating and worthwhile education for court reporters in California. We look forward to seeing you at the LACCRA Seminars!

We are the Gold Standard!

Seminars through LACCRA are one of the easiest, most cost-effective ways to get your Continuing Education hours.  LACCRA sends in your paperwork to the Court and NCRA for the hours (when applicable). LACCRA also sends in the forms to the LASC Court for reimbursement (while funds last) pursuant to the continuing education fund SEIU and LACCRA have negotiated with the Court (MOU Article 42, Section 1).

 The net cost to you as a LACCRA member is $0. LASC Court reporters are mandated by the Judicial Council to have 8 hours of continuing education hours every two years.

The State of California has mandated a move to the paperless courthouse. Court reporters will learn how to produce paperless transcripts from creating an ASCII to providing electronic distribution of PDF transcripts. With YesLaw, reporters deliver a highly functional PDF which includes automatic bookmarking, automatic creation of multi-volume master indexes, and easy secure delivery to all parties.

Educational Objectives:

• Installation and set-up of YesLaw software

• Recommendations for output to paperless delivery

• Overview of creating a YesLaw PDF from your ASCII output

• Delivery options for Los Angeles Official reporters

• What the delivery looks like and how to access online content

Presented by John Garnett & Jeff Cobb with YesLaw, and with Diana Van Dyke

Seminar Policy:

LACCRA must receive an attendee’s (member or nonmember) registration payment no later than 7 days prior to the event. If not timely received, the reporter will be treated as a “walk-in” as described below.

Walk-ins (member or nonmember) will be allowed only if the attendee calls the LACCRA no later than the Thursday morning before the Saturday seminar to request permission to attend, if there is still space available. The registration fee is due at the time of the request to attend is made.

A paid registrant must call the LACCRA office by no later than the Thursday morning before the Saturday seminar to cancel their attendance. If such a call is not timely received, the attendee will forfeit the registration fee of the seminar.

If an attendee does call the LACCRA office no later than Thursday morning before the Saturday seminar, the amount paid to LACCRA will be refunded, minus a fee of $25.00.

Attendees will not be allowed entry 15 minutes after the commencement of the seminar.

LACCRA reserves the right to cancel a seminar, if the minimum number of paid registrants is not met and/or due to unforeseen circumstances whereupon a cancellation is deemed necessary. Upon notice of cancellation, paid registrants will be given the option to either apply their registration fee to a future seminar or to be given a total refund.

Unless otherwise indicated, the subject matter of each technology seminar is the latest version of the software. The software must be preloaded and operational.

Special Accommodation:

Facilities are accessible to persons with disabilities. If you require special accommodation and plan to attend this event, please contact [email protected] as soon as possible. Please allow as much advance notice as is possible to ensure we have ample opportunity to meet your needs.
