Associate Judge Maureen Schuette of the 3rd Judicial Circuit, Madison County has been
appointed as a member of the Illinois State Bar Association Family Law Section Council
and a member of the ISBA Bench and Bar Section Council.
The ISBA is a 28,000-member association with offices in Springfield and Chicago providing services to Illinois lawyers and the courts and education and services to the public. Sections provide continuing education and legislative services to lawyers who practice in a specific area of law. Each section is governed by a council appointed by the state bar president. Judges and non-lawyers also serve on some committees and section councils.
“I am honored to be appointed to these two committees that are so highly regarded,” said Schuette.
In late June, Schuette was a panel member on a presentation for the ISBA Family Law
Section Council to discuss issues regarding the pandemic and the effects on the area of family
law. This was the first Zoom presentation conducted by the ISBA Family Law Section Council.
Schuette was appointed to the 3rd Judicial Circuit as an associate judge in October 2015. Schuette is the presiding supervising judge of the Family Division in Madison County. She also serves on the Illinois Supreme Court Judicial Performance Evaluation Committee.
