The Supreme Court of Illinois is the state’s highest court and its final court of review over decisions of the circuit and appellate courts. In recent years, the Supreme Court has held oral arguments in locations other than Springfield to raise awareness of the judicial branch and of the important role the court system has in interpreting state laws.
