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.
