This on-demand webinar will offer an inside glimpse into the federal court.  It will include information regarding the  clerk’s office, docket administrators, courtroom deputies and chambers. If you want to know what a judge wants to see or what irritates the judge, this course is for you.  It will provide information as to who to contact (and who you should not contact) with questions about a case, trial, or procedure.   If you are interested in a review of federal court deadlines or basic court etiquette, this course will provide that information as well. This course is for beginner and intermediate paralegals, or paralegals new to federal court.  This course is taught by Debby Sawyer, ACP.  Ms.  Sawyer worked for many years as a litigation paralegal before transitioning to the federal court system, where she has experience as a docket administrator, courtroom deputy, and chambers’ staff.
