Courts

Chicago established its first court of record way back in 1831. Ever since then Chicago courts have been influential leaders in the way things are done in the judicial system.

The Chicago court system encompasses the entire Chicago area. This makes the court one of the largest in Illinois and one of the largest in the world. This sheer mass of this system can make it confusing to navigate. Finding courthouses can be difficult because of how many there are and not knowing for certain which court handles a specific type of case. Use our legal resources to find the courts relevant to your type of case.
