LACCRA's SEMINARS 2018


The LACCRA Seminar Committee has begun planning for the 2018 seminar series!


The Los Angeles County Court Reporters Association has earned a well-deserved reputation for sponsoring stimulating and worthwhile education for court reporters in California. Seminars will be added here and on the calendar as they are confirmed.

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. LACCRA also sends in the forms to the LAS 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 new cycle started January 1, 2017.

Registration Fees

LACCRA Members $125
Nonmembers $150
