Last week, Illinois Supreme Court and Justice Mary Jane Theis announced the appointment of Alison C. Conlon as Cook County Circuit Judge. Her appointment will fill the at-large vacancy created by the retirement of Judge Thomas Hogan on December 31, 2014.
Alison has served on PILI’s Board of Directors since 2012, and has been committed to pro bono work throughout her career. In addition to her board service with PILI, Alison currently serves on the Hearing Board of the Illinois Attorney Registration and Disciplinary Commission and on Catholic Charities’ advisory board.
In an article published in Illinois Lawyer Now, Alison said expressed her gratitude:
“I am very honored by this appointment,” Ms. Conlon said. “I am grateful for the confidence shown in me by the Supreme Court and by Justice Theis. Today’s appointment starts an important new chapter for me in which I look forward to serving the residents of Cook County as a circuit judge.”
