Chandra Lye for the Madison Record

The Illinois Supreme Court has instituted a program that it believes will boost sensitivity to diversity and mental health issues in the legal profession in the state.
The Amended Supreme Court Rule 794(d) requires that all lawyers in the state complete an hour of diversity and inclusion continuing lawyer education (CLE) as well as another hour of mental health and substance abuse training as part of the Professional Responsibility CLE requirement.
