The Timothy C. Evans scholarship was established to honor the commitment and dedication that the Chief Judge of the Circuit Court of Cook County has devoted to the Northwest Suburban Bar Association (NWSBA) and to the community of Cook County.

Who Is Timothy C. Evans?

As the Chief Judge of the Circuit Court of Cook County, Timothy C. Evans presides over one of the largest unified court systems in the world. Cook County has more than 400 Judges and more than 2.4 million cases filed annually. During his tenure as Chief Judge, Judge Evans has innovated safe haven programs for children of parents attending or guardians attending court. Additionally, he has been a tireless champion of expanding opportunities for women and minorities in the court system. Also, Chief Judge Evans led the effort to open the new, domestic violence courthouse located at 555 W. Harrison Street in Chicago, which opened in 2005.

The NWSBA Foundation, which was established to increase the association’s charitable reach, is honored to recognize Judge Evans’ contribution to the legal community through this scholarship.

In 2013, Chief Judge Timothy C. Evans received the NWSBA’s Public Service Award at the NWSBA’s annual Judges’ Night. Also, Judge Evans was in attendance when Judge Neil H. Cohen received the Northwest Suburban Bar Association’s 2016 Public Service Award.
