Annual Reports

Our efforts and progress in meeting the duties delineated in Illinois Supreme Court Rule 799 are presented in our Annual Reports. These reports acknowledge our collaborating partners who embrace civility and professionalism and are working with us to transform the profession. We submit our Annual Reports to the Illinois Supreme Court each year. An audited accounting of the monies received and expended is included with the reports.

Survey on Professionalism Reports

We have conducted two surveys of Illinois lawyers to help us learn about the professionalism challenges attorneys are experiencing and how we can better address their needs.

In 2007, we sponsored a Survey on Professionalism designed in collaboration with the American Bar Foundation and the behavior and opinion research firm of Leo J. Shapiro & Associates. A random sample of 1,079 Illinois lawyers participated. In 2014, the National Center for Professional and Research Ethics at the University of Illinois in Urbana-Champaign conducted the Study of Illinois Lawyers. A random sample of 4,450 Illinois lawyers participated.
