Eliminating Disparities: Ensuring Accessible Justice For All in Illinois Courts
Tuesday, October 19, 2021, 12:00 PM until 1:30 PM
Chicago Appleseed Center for Fair Courts and the Chicago Council of Lawyers work together in a Collaboration for Justice to promote fair, accessible, and anti-racist courts. This year they are presenting an online series focused on identifying and fighting hidden injustices.
This event will feature two keynote speakers: first, Illinois Attorney General, Kwame Raoul will discuss what the judicial, legislative, and executive responsibilities are in eliminating disparities and improving the Illinois Courts; then, Chief Justice of the Illinois Supreme Court, Honorable Anne Burke, will discuss judicial redistricting in Illinois, the Illinois Supreme Court’s new centralized approach to pretrial programs, and what the judiciary can do to help ensure accessible justice for all.
