On December 11, 2015, the Illinois Supreme Court issued an Order appointing John Kujawski of O’Fallon, Illinois to the Supreme Court Commission on Professionalism. The Mission of the Commission is “to promote a culture of civility and inclusion, in which Illinois lawyers and judges embody the ideals of the legal profession in service to the administration of justice in our democratic society.” The Commission is charged by Supreme Court Rule 799 to promote among both lawyers and judges in Illinois greater integrity, professionalism and civility; to foster commitment to the elimination of bias and divisiveness within the legal and judicial systems; and to ensure those systems provide equitable, efficient and effective service to the citizens of Illinois.
