What is MDEC?

E-filing for Attorneys:

The Maryland Electronic Courts (MDEC) project will create a single Judiciary-wide integrated case management system that will be used by all the courts in the state court system. Courts will collect, store, and process records electronically, and will be able to instantly access complete records as cases travel from District Court to Circuit Court and on to the appellate courts.

Attorneys and law professionals across the state must get ready for the start of mandatory e-filing in Anne Arundel County. Starting this fall, any attorney who files a case in Anne Arundel County will be required to e-file. This includes attorneys from other jurisdictions who are filing in Anne Arundel County. Also important to note: Attorneys who e-file need to register to do so.

A new online tutorial is now available on the Judiciary’s website to help attorneys as they prepare for e-filing. The online tutorial has step-by-step instructions on how to register to e-file, how to find his/her attorney/Client Protection Fund number, and how to initiate a new case.
