The Committee on Judicial Education hosted a live one-hour webinar on Tuesday, December 19. The webinar offered judges an opportunity to learn and ask about the Illinois Bail Reform Act which is scheduled to enter into effect on January 1, 2018.
During the webinar, a panel of judges, including Hon. Brad Paisley, 4th Circuit, Hon. Robbin Stuckert, Chief Judge, 23rd Circuit, Hon. Timothy Evans, Chief Judge, Cook County, and Hon. William Yoder, 11th Circuit, explained the changes required by the act, attempted to clarify some of the law’s ambiguities, and answered questions judges may have about implementation and operating under the new rules.
The webinar was recorded and a link was distributed to all judges for viewing.
