In honor of Latino Hispanic Heritage Month, the Circuit Court of Cook County will host two consecutive days of tours of the Richard J. Daley Center Courthouse on September 28 and September 29, 2015.  The tours are co-sponsored by the Hispanic Lawyers Association of Illinois and the Puerto Rican Bar Association.

 

“The Annual Latino Hispanic Heritage Month Courthouse Tours are part of the court’s year-round Community Heritage Month Courthouse Tour series which coincide with observances that celebrate racial and ethnic diversity. The tours help the court to reach out to Cook County’s many diverse communities hoping to increase understanding of how the legal system works and to ensure that opportunity to view how the court functions firsthand is available to everyone,” said Circuit Court of Cook County Chief Judge Timothy C. Evans. Now in their 16th year, the tours have been attended by thousands of Cook County residents.

 

Located at 50 West Washington Street in Chicago, the Daley Center is the main courthouse for the Circuit Court of Cook County, one of the nation’s largest unified court systems. Tour participants will visit a courtroom to observe a civil trial in progress, attend an informal question and answer session with a judge, and have the opportunity to meet with bar association representatives.

 

Tour participants also receive a copy of the court’s informational guide, which outlines how the Circuit Court of Cook County is structured, explains the basics of trial proceedings, and includes a directory of court and county services.

 

Tour reservations are recommended. Individuals or groups planning to attend the Annual Latino Hispanic Heritage Month Courthouse Tours should contact Milissa Pacelli, of the Circuit Court of Cook County’s Office of Accessibility and Education Outreach, at 312.603.1927 on or before Wednesday, September 23, 2015.  The tours are limited to persons age ten and older, with a maximum of 35 persons to a group.
