February 2024 Business Meeting

February 2024 Business Meeting
Meeting Date: Thursday, February 22, 2024

Please register here.

Location: Zoom (meeting details to follow)
Time: 12:00 p.m. – 1:00 p.m. (Please stay on Zoom after the meeting to network and catch up with CALL friends.)


We will be joined by Justice Aurelia Pucinski and Justice Cynthia Cobbs of the Illinois Appellate Court, First District, who will discuss mental health issues faced by courts. These issues are among the most difficult for reviewing courts to parse out and can run the gamut from commitment hearings being appealed to criminal, family, probate, and domestic violence cases where one or both sides claim some mental health issue to explain or mitigate behavior. In some cases the fact pattern found in the trial court gets great discretion, but in others the reviewing court reviews the issue de novo, considering all the facts presented.
