A Peek Under the Tent: Civil Litigation Tips Seasoned Judges Share with New Members of the Bench

The YLS Lunch with a Judge series strives to provide young lawyers with the unique opportunity to hear from a member of the bench in an intimate setting. Our May speaker will be Judge Patricia Spratt.

Judge Spratt was appointed to fill a vacancy on the Seventh Subcircuit in Cook County, Illinois, by the Illinois Supreme Court on August 26, 2015, to a term commencing on September 8 of that year and expiring on December 5, 2016. She succeeded Judge Anita Rivkin-Carothers. Judge Spratt was then elected to the Cook County Circuit Court in Illinois in 2016. She currently serves in the Chancery Division.
