Welcome to Illinois Judicial Council
Our Mission Statement
The mission of the Illinois Judicial Council is to enhance the image of the judiciary by serving as a collective voice in strong support of its members and encouraging judicial participation in the Cook County Bar Association, National Bar Association and the Judicial Council of the National Bar Association; to serve the community by dispensing scholarships, encouraging the youth of the community in their positive goals, serving as “role models” and as constructive resources for the youth, educating and enlightening the community about the legal process and striving to providing equal access to the courts and to justice.
On January 13, 1982, a small group of African-American judges met in Chicago, at the Community Insurance Company, to discuss problems common to black judges.
I am honored to serve as Chair of the Illinois Judicial Council. My theme for the year, Honoring the Past…Inspiring the Future, is descriptive of my plans for the year. First let me thank the Banquet Committee, because of your hard work and efforts we had a sold-out event. Let me next thank the new Officers and Board, in advance of the year, because I have all confidence that you will help me make this a banner year, for I cannot do it alone.
