Judicial Evaluations - Cook County

The goal of the Standing Committee on Judicial Evaluations – Cook County is to evaluate the qualifications of candidates for judicial office, and to report the committee’s conclusions to the electorate, whether it be voters in the primary and general elections, circuit judges who elect associate judges, or the justices of the Supreme Court of Illinois who make appointments to fill vacancies on the bench.

No committee member who serves on a campaign committee, or is actively involved in fund raising for any candidate under review, may participate in the investigation or evaluation of any candidate for the same judicial office.

This committee consists of two co-chairs, a secretary, an appeal subcommittee and sufficient members to implement its responsibilities in Cook County. Fifteen members shall constitute a quorum.

This committee is authorized to speak for the Association; its findings are not subject to review or approval by the Board of Governors.
