Recent amendments to Supreme Court Rule 41 are designed to make the new Judicial Conference a smaller, more active, and more engaged group. “The courts operate in a world of ever-advancing technology, rapidly changing social and political norms, shifting demographics and economic uncertainty,” Justice Karmeier said. “If the judicial branch is to deliver on its promise of equal justice under the law, it is critical that we move forward as well. This Strategic Agenda will help us anticipate and prepare for the future.
The CBF is honored to be part of this work planning for the future of the Illinois Courts. The work of the new Judicial Conference dovetails with the CBF’s work to make the courts more user-friendly, fair, and accessible for everyone in our community, particularly the growing number of people without lawyers.
