Judicial Evaluation

About the JEC:
By Board resolution, the Judicial Evaluation Committee (JEC) is the semi-autonomous committee of The Chicago Bar Association that conducts evaluations of candidates for judicial offices and sitting judges seeking retention within Cook County. As a service to the public, the CBA reports the findings of the JEC for all elections. The evaluations are designed to inform the public and the courts of the qualifications, independence and integrity of judicial candidates. The CBA believes that the quality of the administration of justice in our courts is determined in large part by the quality of our judges. If you have any questions, please call or email Therese Kurth at 312-554-2043. Members of the press, please contact Linda Heacox, CBA Public Relations Director, at 312-554-2012.
