NOTICE: Expansion of Two-Factor Authentication Requirement to All Judiciary Applications Used By Attorneys; CLE Training Available

Attorneys were previously advised of the added security requirement to use two-factor authentication when accessing the online 2021 Attorney Registration application (Notice dated November 30, 2020). This notice is to advise that effective May 1, 2021, the two-factor authentication requirement will be extended to all Judiciary applications used by attorneys.

As indicated in that earlier notice, two-factor authentication uses the email address or cell phone number previously provided by attorneys and verified/updated as part of the 2021 Attorney Registration process.

To assist attorneys through this expansion of the two-factor authentication beyond the Attorney Registration application, the Superior Court Clerk’s Office is making available at no cost training on the use of the two-factor authentication process. This training will include the legal and ethical requirements related to Judiciary information security. Additionally, Judiciary staff will provide useful techniques to troubleshoot problems and provide answers to frequently asked questions related to two-factor authentication.

The sessions will be conducted using Microsoft Teams. Attorneys must register in advance. The scheduled training sessions are as follows:

Tuesdays – 10:00am – 11:00am

Thursdays – 2:00pm – 3:00pm

Attorneys completing this no cost training will receive 1.0 ethics/professionalism CLE credits. To request to attend one of these virtual sessions, please click the appropriate date from the listing above. A separate Microsoft Teams invitation will be sent in advance of the assigned date confirming your registration.

Questions regarding this notice may be directed to the Superior Court Clerk’s Office at SCCO.mailbox@njcourts.gov or 609-421-6100.

/s/ Hon. Glenn A. Grant, J.A.D.

Acting Administrative Director of the Courts
