Signing In or Creating an Account
Signing in to the portal
There are two ways to sign into the portal.
- Username and password. You chose these credentials when you created your account.
- Attorney, judge or mediator number and PIN. These are assigned to you by the Supreme Court and mailed to you each year on your continuing education statement.
To sign in with your attorney, judge or mediator number and PIN, you must first change the sign in selection. You cannot successfully sign in by typing your attorney number into a field that requests your username or email address. You cannot successfully sign in by typing your PIN where it asks for your password. See our frequently asked questions for more information about attorney or mediator number and PIN number.
If you forgot your password, click the "Forgot Password" link and follow the prompts. You have to be able to provide your email address (to reset your password) or answer your security questions (to directly sign in).
If you aren't able to recover your password, and you don't have your PIN, you can request your PIN be sent to you by mail or email.
Creating an account
To create an account, go to http://portal.courts.in.gov/ and click the "Create an Account" button. Follow the prompts on the screen to choose a password and security questions. You will receive a confirmation email when your account has been successfully created.
To register for the clerk's portal, you must:
- have an Indiana bar number, mediator number or non-attorney judge number, OR
- be invited to register as an account administrator by an attorney, mediator or judge with an existing account
Information you'll need on hand
If you are an attorney, mediator, or judge, you will need:
- your Indiana bar number, mediator number, or non-attorney judge number
- the PIN number assigned to you by the Supreme Court (this number is printed on your annual statements from the Commission for Continuing Legal Education, and you should keep a record of it, as it may come in handy from time to time), AND
- a valid email address not shared with another user of the portal
If you are an invited account administrator, you will need:
- the email address where the invitation was sent.
When creating your account, or when using the "Forgot Username" or "Forgot Password" links on the sign-in screen, you may be prompted to enter your attorney number, your non-attorney judge number, or your mediator number.
Attorney numbers include a sequence number (usually one to six digits), a hyphen, and the two-digit county number. Some attorney numbers used to include letters at the end, but the use of these letters has been discontinued (see our FAQ for more information on this). When entering your attorney number, you must include the hyphen, otherwise the portal will not recognize the number. Examples of correctly formatted attorney numbers include:
Non-attorney judge numbers are formatted in the same way as attorney numbers, but also include an NA at the end. Include the hyphen and the NA suffix when entering your non-attorney judge number.
Mediator numbers do not include hyphens and should be entered without them.
