18.2 Applicability of Rules
The mandatory arbitration program of the Circuit Court of Cook County, Illinois, is governed by the Supreme Court Rules for the Conduct of Mandatory Arbitration Proceedings (Supreme Court Rules 86-95, inclusive). Pursuant to Supreme Court Rule 86(c), these local rules are adopted, effective January 16, 1990, and as amended thereafter. Since arbitration proceedings in this circuit are governed by both sets of rules, reference is made in the caption of each local rule to the Supreme Court Rule governing the same subject.
[Amended July 30, 2001, effective August 1, 2001.]
