Campaign website established for Judge Diana Embil

A campaign website has been established for Judge Diana Embil, candidate for the Doody vacancy in the south suburban 15th Judicial Subcircuit. That's a link to Judge Embil's campaign website in the preceding sentence; a link has also been added to the blog Sidebar.

The Illinois Supreme Court appointed Judge Embil to the Doody vacancy earlier this year; she was subsequently slated for that vacancy by the Democratic Party.

Embil's campaign website notes that Judge Embil was a teacher and worked for insurance companies before deciding to attend law school. Licensed as an attorney in Illinois since 1988, Judge Embil's campaign website stresses the variety of the her work experience, including "work for liability and property insurance companies, the Illinois Appellate and Supreme Courts, and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency." She is also the Secretary of the Illinois Minimum Continuing Legal Education Board.

According to her campaign site, Judge Embil "volunteered with and supported the Girl Scouts; served as a Jail Project volunteer with the Chicago Legal Advocacy for Incarcerated Mothers; served as a board member or volunteer for various community organizations; and currently serves on the Board of Saltpond Redevelopment Institute, an organization committed to community development in West Africa. She is a former member of AFGE 704 (AFL-CIO)."
