***IMPORTANT NOTICE TO ALL ATTORNEYS LICENSED IN VERMONT***

A User Guide to the Portal is available here. Important information on managing attorney login credentials can be found here:

The Vermont Supreme Court has the power under the Vermont Constitution to oversee the professional conduct of all attorneys practicing in Vermont. The court formed the Vermont Professional Responsibility Board to administer the professional responsibility program, which regulates the legal profession.
The Vermont courts send all court-issued documents (hearing notices, orders, etc.) to attorneys by email using the email addresses registered in a system called eCabinet. Attorneys may register up to three email addresses in the system and are responsible for keeping the information updated. The email address(es) registered in eCabinet are not used for service of documents filed by opposing parties, which is done through service contacts in the efiling system.
To create an eCabinet account or update an existing account, attorneys must contact the Judiciary helpdesk through one of the methods listed below. Please include your attorney bar license number in your communication.
