How do I get a login and password to electronically file in CM/ECF?


Only attorneys admitted to practice in the Western District of Louisiana or appearing provisionally (such as an attorney appearing pro hac vice, or representing the United States) will be authorized to electronically file documents in this court.  For e-filing access, attorneys must submit a request via PACER.

Go to

  1. Log in to Manage My Account.
  2. Click the Maintenance tab.
  3. Click Attorney Admissions/E-File Registration.
  4. Select District Court.
  5. Select Western District of Louisiana.
  6. Click the E-File Registration Only button.
  7. Follow prompts to complete all sections of E-File Registration.

You will then need to wait for the court to process the request before e-filing privileges are activated.  You will receive an automated email once your request has been processed.

To learn more about submitting a new e-file request, review the electronic learning module for the Manage My Account Maintenance tab in PACER.
