LACourtConnect (LACC) participants will soon gain access to the newest features and enhancements for remote appearances. The updated LACC for probate matters is now available, and, beginning June 3, for civil, family law and traffic matters.
The new features include a Virtual Gallery where attorneys can review their upcoming remote hearing information for that day; test their audio and video equipment; view court announcements; chat with others in the Virtual Gallery via text, audio and video; and monitor the courtroom while waiting for hearings to be called.
A video overview for attorneys to familiarize themselves with the new features, along with other useful information including a link to the probate attorney Sandbox Sessions, is available on the Attorney Portal and the LACC pages of the Court’s website.
Future Sandbox Sessions for civil, family law and traffic attorneys will be available closer to the LACC rollout date.
Each individual LACC user including clients, experts and witnesses will now be required to have and use a uniquely assigned CourtID for registration.
Users are urged to ensure the email and password for the person who is joining the hearing is used for registration, if done by office staff. For attorneys, this is the same unique password and email used for other Court applications, such as the Attorney Portal. For others, information about how to create a CourtID is available at LACCWhatyouneedUG.pdf (lacourt.org).
