In this episode of The Florida Bar Podcast, Adriana Linares interviews Carolyn Weber, program manager for the design and implementation of the portal, and Tom Hall, lawyer and consultant to the FCCC. Together, they discuss the major issues lawyers have with the Florida Courts E-Filing Portal and tips on document requirements.

Many lawyers who are part of the Florida Bar do not realize what the Practice Resource Institute (PRI) has to offer. The PRI is an online resource for lawyers who need help with office technology, finance and accounting, marketing, management, or who need assistance with all aspects of starting a new practice. Much of the content is free to the public and there are additional services available to members. In this episode of The Florida Bar Podcast, Adriana Linares interviews Jonathon Israel, director of The Florida Bar Practice Resource Institute. Israel discusses how the PRI has developed to offer a myriad of new opportunities available to any lawyer (not just Florida Bar members). He describes the structure of the site and the types of information, resources, and tools you should expect from visiting the PRI website or becoming a member. In the future, Israel explains, the PRI will respond to member feedback to include more video and audio content, social media interaction, and aggregation.
