Learning your way around the Circuit Court doesn't have to be a trying experience! Especially designed for newly admitted attorneys, this walk through is an informative introduction to its practice and procedures. Our presenters will address the nuts and bolts of practice in the Court and provide a tour of the clerk's and sheriff's offices that will help explain the procedures for both filing and service of process. During the tour, the Clerk will provide invaluable handouts that even experienced practitioners will find useful, particularly at the Cook County Circuit Court.

Hon. William D. Maddux, Presiding Judge, Circuit Court of Cook County, Law Division

Hon. John P. Kirby, Circuit Court of Cook County, Motions Section
