Want a say in the future of the Illinois judicial branch?
The Administrative Office of the Illinois Courts (AOIC) requests feedback from the Illinois legal and judicial communities on priorities for the Illinois Judicial Conference (IJC). The input will be used to develop a strategic agenda for the recently reconstituted IJC.
In September 2018, the Illinois Supreme Court approved amendments to Supreme Court Rule 41, which, in 1971, established an IJC “to consider the work of the courts, to suggest improvements in the administration of justice, and to make recommendations for the improvement of the courts.”
The amendments were aimed at creating a smaller but more active IJC of 29 voting members: 15 judges and 14 non-judges, with the Chief Justice serving as Chair. The IJC members are tasked with developing and implementing a long-term statewide strategic agenda for the judicial branch.
The recently issued AOIC survey aims to gather opinions on the biggest challenges and emerging trends the court will face in the future. Judges, trial court administrators, clerks, the legal community, criminal justice community, and community/social service providers across Illinois are asked to respond.
If you’d like to share your feedback, please complete the AOIC survey below by January 14, 2019. The strategic agenda will be announced in October 2019.
If you have general questions about the IJC or the survey, please contact Todd Schroeder, Assistant Director, Court Services, AOIC, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 217-785-2125. If you’re having problems completing the survey, please contact Angela Miner, AOIC Court Statistical and Research Analyst, at email@example.com or 217-785-3889.
