Retrieving Attorney Court Calendars and Case Information Online

Attorneys and staff can retrieve Oregon circuit court calendars and case information online by following these easy steps.

Using OJCIN to Retrieve Your eCourt Calendar

  1. Navigate to OJCIN Online.
  2. Under “Select a Destination,” choose Oregon eCourt Case Information (OECI). Click “Sign In.”
  3. Enter your OJIN/OJCIN user ID and password.  (A paid account is required).
  4. Leave the location set to “All Locations” to generate the most comprehensive search results.
  5. Choose “Search Court Calendar.”
  6. Under “Search by” at the top of the page, click the down arrow and choose “Attorney.”
  7. Under Attorney Information, enter your last name and first name. Alternatively, change the button selection to “Bar Number” and enter your bar number.
  8. Under Date Range leave “On or After” set to today’s date.  Change “On or Before” to a new date 90 days or less in the future.  For example, search “On or After” 5/26/2015 and “On or Before” 8/23/2015.  Calendar activity can only be retrieved 90 days out from the “On or After” date.
  9. Jump directly to any case included in the search results by clicking on the hyperlink for that case.

Using OJCIN to Retrieve eCourt Case Information

For a list of all your cases, choose “Search Civil, Family and Probate Case Records” or “Search Criminal, Traffic and Parking Cases” at steps 4/5 above.

  • Remember to change “Search by” to “Attorney.”
  • Under “Case Status” decide if you want “All” cases, “Open,” or “Closed.”
  • The “Date Filed” field can be left blank unless you prefer to retrieve only those cases filed within a specific date range.
  • Search results can be sorted a number of ways.  “Filed Date” is the default. To change the default, click on the down arrow under “Sort by.”

Using the OJD Public Access Site to Retrieve eCourt and non eCourt Calendar Events

Calendar information can be retrieved from the public Oregon Judicial Department (OJD) website without logging in to OJCIN or OJIN.  The interface varies, depending on whether you are retrieving calendar events from an eCourt or non eCourt jurisdiction.

Retrieve Calendar Events from OECI (eCourt Jurisdictions)

  1. Navigate to the public access calendars.
  2. Under “Select a Destination,” choose Oregon eCourt Case Information (OECI). Click Go.
  3. Follow steps 4-8 above for using OJCIN to retrieve your court calendar.
  4. Events for the next 90 days will be displayed.  Since you aren’t logged into to OJCIN, you won’t be able to jump to the hyperlinked cases.

Retrieve Calendar Events from OJIN (non eCourt jurisdictions)

  1. Navigate to the public access calendars.
  2. Under “Select a Destination,” choose OJIN Circuit Court Calendars. Click Go.
  3. Leave “court” set to “All Courts” for the most comprehensive results.
  4. In the “Attorney:” field enter your last name in this format: Last First Middle with no commas.  Click Go.
  5. Events for the next 90 days will be displayed.  Since OJIN courts are not part of the Oregon eCourt Case Information system, no hyperlinked case information is available.
