Cook County Associate Judge Vacancies

Chief Judge Timothy C. Evans today posted a notice for ten vacancies for the office of associate judge of the Cook County Circuit Court.

While Circuit Judges are elected by the public, Associate Judges are appointed by the Circuit Judges in a selection process conducted by the Administrative Office of the Illinois Courts.  Licensed attorneys submit applications for consideration and undergo evaluations by bar associations. A Nominating Committee, which includes Judge Evans and presiding judges of various court divisions, then interviews the applicants and selects finalists.
