Message from the President

We are looking forward to the 2018 Illinois Association of Problem-Solving Courts Conference October 18-19. This year is promising to be our best conference yet as we welcome national speakers Doug Marlowe, Norma Jaeger, Meghan Wheeler, Karen Otis, and Carlos Quezada-Gomez. In addition, we will have presentations from local experts that will surely benefit your problem-solving court. Conference registration is almost full, but there is still time to register by clicking on the ILAPSC Conference tab above and selecting Conference Registration.

We are also looking forward to our two networking events scheduled Wednesday and Thursday evening. On Wednesday night, we will be bringing back our Bags tournament, with improvements to allow for more games played. Thursday night will be our more traditional networking event. Light hors d’oeuvres and a cash bar will be available both nights.

Thank you for visiting our website, and I hope to see you at the Conference.


Jeffrey B. Ford, President
Illinois Association of Problem-Solving Courts

Illinois Problem Solving Court Standards & Certification Process

The Illinois Problem-Solving Court Standards and Certification and Application process were approved by the Supreme Court in November, 2015. All Problem-Solving Courts (adult courts as labeled in the Standards) have to be certified by the Supreme Court. Any new Problem-Solving Court must be certified prior to starting.
