Alliance of Bar Associations soliciting questionnaires from Cook County Judicial hopefuls

The posted deadline for returning Alliance questionnaires is September 1; forms are available on the Illinois State Bar Association website (yes, that's a link to the site).

The Alliance of Bar Associations for Judicial Screening is comprised of the Asian American Bar Association of the Greater Chicago Area (AABA), Black Women Lawyers’ Association of Greater Chicago (BWLA), Chicago Council of Lawyers (CCL), Cook County Bar Association (CCBA), Decalogue Society of Lawyers (DSL), Hellenic Bar Association (HBA), Hispanic Lawyers Association of Illinois (HLAI), Illinois State Bar Association (ISBA), Lesbian and Gay Bar Association of Chicago (LAGBAC), Puerto Rican Bar Association of Illinois (PRBA), and Women’s Bar Association of Illinois(WBAI), working collaboratively to improve the process of screening judicial candidates in Cook County, Illinois.

Related: At the end of July, I posted that the Chicago Bar Association was soliciting evaluation questionnaires from judicial candidates planning to seek party slating. As of this morning, the JEC page on the CBA website no longer has that information. Judicial hopefuls, especially those who have not been screened previously by the CBA, may wish to contact the CBA directly for more information. (An email link is provided on the CBA JEC page.)
