E-Business for the Courts - Electronic Record (E-Record)

e Record

On October 24, 2012, the Illinois Supreme Court filed Order M.R. 1218, which adopted "Electronic Record Standards and Principles", effective January 1, 2013, and integrated them into the Manual on Recordkeeping established by the Court's General Administrative Order on Recordkeeping in the Circuit Courts, dated May 20, 1968, as amended.

In November 2012, the Court approved Guidelines for the Application to Designate the Electronic Record as the Official Record for Civil Cases in the Circuit Court, which were to be used to guide Circuit Courts through the process of applying to the Supreme Court for approval to make the electronic record the official court record.

Currently, only 1 circuit court, DuPage County, has been approved to designate the electronic record as the official court record.
