Trial Courts

The first level in the Illinois courts is the Circuit or Trial Courts. This is the level that most people are familiar with and where judges and lawyers conduct trials, weigh evidence, and listen to the issues and make decisions.

Appellate Court

The Appellate Court is the second level in the Illinois court system. Here, issues are generally decided regarding whether mistakes were made at the trial level. There are 5 District Appellate Courts in Illinois, each having jurisdiction in its own geographic area. Though governed by the same rules, sometimes, the Districts make decisions that would appear to conflict with one another. On the flip side, often, the Districts will listen to each other and try to make decisions that are in conformity with each other.

Supreme Court

The highest level in the Illinois Court system is the Supreme Court. Seven Justices elected from around the State determine issues, resolve discrepancies between the Districts, and make decide cases that can affect the fundamental rights of citizens. The Supreme Court is the final determiner and protector of rights in the State, and to advocate for those interests in front of the Court is a true honor and privilege for any lawyer.
