Speaking Engagement Request Form | State of Illinois Office of the Illinois Courts

General Information

The Illinois Judicial Speakers Bureau was established by the  Illinois Supreme Court to increase awareness of our judicial system and its role in the community.

The Speakers Bureau enables community groups like schools and non-profit organizations to learn more about the judicial system and its function in a democracy directly from judges and other court officials.

All presentations are voluntary by the judges with no cost to the community. The Illinois Judicial Speakers Bureau looks forward to working with your organization.

How It Works

A group representative may fill out the online form. A member of the Office of Communications will reach out with additional questions and information to schedule the engagement.
