This term refers to "Case Management/Electronic Case Filing."

This an "electronic filing" procedure that only applies to attorneys.

If you are filing for bankruptcy without an attorney (also known as filing 'pro se'), you can safely ignore all the warnings about "mandatory CM/ECF" -- you are not required to file electronically.
