Quis custodiet ipsos custodes?

Who watches the watchers? Or, very loosely translated, for the purposes of this post, who evaluates judges?

The answer may be you, if you are a member of the Chicago Bar Association with a few years of practice experience and if you are willing to apply to the CBA Judicial Evaluation Committee

Per email received this week from the CBA's Therese Kurth, the CBA JEC is looking for members to serve in its Investigation Division. The CBA JEC evaluates both candidates for the bench and sitting judges seeking retention. Applications are available on the CBA website at

Applications should be returned to Therese Kurth via fax 312-554-2054 or by email to on or before October 31, 2011. Current JEC members are not required to reapply.
