The California Lawyers Association has designated this week Well-Being Week in Law. Since all of April was poetry month (admittedly, not a CLA designation), having just a week of well-being seems to give short shrift to a critical issue but I still applaud the CLA for focusing on the issue. In fact, the CLA addresses mental health every year the first week in May to coincide with Mental Health Awareness Month. If you click through to its Health and Wellness page, you’ll find some helpful resources, including several live webinars this week, as well as past webinars, articles, and further links.

Marin Superior Court Accepting eDelivery
Apr 13, 2022

Effective April 13, 2022, eDelivery, a service that will allow for the electronic submission of filing documents for Civil, Family, Probate, and Small Claims will be available on the Court’s website at http://www.marincourt.org/edelivery.htm. eDelivery is not mandatory, and also does not replace the Court’s future goal of implementing eFiling. The Court is in the process of updating its case management system which is a requirement for implementing eFiling. Please see Local Rule 1.51 and Emergency Local Rule 22.01 which govern the use of eDelivery.

On behalf of MCBA’s board of directors and staff, I would like to thank everyone who came to the installation reception. Over 100 people attended our first in-person event since last July’s summer BBQ and only our second since the pandemic began. It was at once strange and utterly normal to see so many friends and colleagues and be able to talk with a whole person instead of a tiny black square or at best a talking head. One advantage of having to postpone the event until March was daylight saving time: the new Jonas Center venue sits among woods but was filled with light and the outdoor space allowed us to mingle more like it was summer.
