Reminder: Judicial ratings for tomorrow’s primary!

Tomorrow is an important day for lawyers.  That is because tomorrow is primary day, when for all intents and purposes, we will be electing judges for a six year term (the primary is so important because most of the candidates will run unopposed on election day).

So, I wanted to post the links one more time for the Chicago Bar Association and Alliance of Bar Associations.

As I have said before, I am a member of the Chicago Bar Association’s Judicial Evaluation Committee, and we have spent hundreds of hours scrutinizing the candidate’s background, speaking with references as well as judges and opposing counsel who have seen them in court, and meeting with the candidates in person.  We strive to be non-partisan, and base our findings on the candidate’s integrity, work ethic, legal knowledge and ability, temperament and community involvement.

Here are the links to the Chicago Bar Association ratings:

View the Chicago Bar Association’s complete findings in the Green Guide to Judicial Candidates.

View the Chicago Bar Association’s two-page, printable Pocket Guide (take this quick guide with you to vote).

Or, see the Pocket Guide on your smart phone at http://m.chicagobar.org/.

The Alliance of Bar Assocations’ ratings can be found here.

Just remember that the person you vote tomorrow for might be your judge one day.
