    Two Illinois Appellate Court opinions approved res ipsa loquitur claims against municipalities. But that was in 1916 and 1959 — before the legislature enacted the Local Governmental and Governmental Employees Tort Immunity Act.
  • It hadn’t even been eight hours since Donald Trump had declared victory early on Nov. 9 when the American Civil Liberties Union’s national Twitter account made a promise to the soon-to-be executive: “Should President-elect Donald Trump attempt to implement his unconstitutional campaign promises, we'll see him in court.”

  • The dictionary defines “rule of law” as “the restriction of the arbitrary exercise of power by subordinating it to well-defined and established laws.” This is a principle embodied in our Constitution that we all learn about in high school, but few of us ever give it much thought after that.

  • Founded in 1934, the Decalogue Society of Lawyers is the oldest continuously functioning Jewish bar association in the United States. Decalogue believes that its members, through their membership and involvement in the organization’s activities, combine the attributes of our lives unique to being both attorneys and Jews (or Jewish allies). There are many ways our members express and develop themselves as attorneys and Jews separately, but Decalogue serves as a crucial and unique forum to combine those aspects in the activities, potential and strength of a bar association.

  • Law Day recognizes and celebrates the importance of the rule of law. As members of the legal community, it is part of our responsibility to educate the public about the law. As the current president of the Illinois Judges Association, the statewide organization representing the interests of more than 1,200 active and retired judges, I am proud that our association takes an active role in educational programs that promote public trust and confidence in the judiciary. I am also thankful for the leadership in bar organizations like the Illinois State Bar Association, The Chicago Bar Association, the Women’s Bar Association of Illinois and others for their roles in speaking out against injustice and upholding the rule of law. I am confident that with their continued leadership, we can ensure that Rev. Martin Neimöller’s quote warning against the dangers of complacency and inaction will not become a reality. The theme for Law Day 2017, The 14th Amendment: Transforming American Democracy, underscores the need for such continued leadership in our bar organizations, in our legal community and in our country.
