Seventh Circuit Bar Association Member,

 On behalf of the Association’s officers and board, I hope that you
and your family are safe and well during this extraordinarily difficult time.  Of course, we will not have the opportunity to gather for our Annual Meeting and Judicial Conference this year, originally scheduled for May 3-5.  (Those who have already registered for the event, or who have purchased tables, will receive a refund.)  As soon as we finalize plans for the next annual meeting and conference, we will communicate that information to you.

 We look forward to gathering again when we’re all able.
Until then, please take care.

Mike Scodro

President, Seventh Circuit Bar Association



     The United States District Court for the Northern District of Illinois is accepting applications for a full-time United States Magistrate Judge position in the Western Division, with the Stanley J. Roszkowski United States Courthouse at Rockford, Illinois as the duty station.

The deadline for the submission of completed applications is extended to 5:00 p.m. on Friday, May 1, 2020. The successful candidate for this Magistrate Judge position will be appointed only upon the confirmation of the current U.S. Magistrate Judge as a U.S. District Judge and is contingent upon the approval of the Seventh Circuit Judicial Council and of the Judicial Conference Committee on the Administration of the Magistrate Judges System to fill this potential vacancy. The successful candidate is also subject to a background investigation by the Federal Bureau of Investigations and an Internal Revenue Service filing review.
