Complete the following steps to assure yourself of the best possible Judici Courtlook experience.
Go to the Courtlook Premium Services page.
From Judici home page, click PREMIUM SERVICES at top
Click the Courtlook: section header.
Click the "Subscribe Now" button.
Click the "Continue" button in the Shopping Cart at left.
Review/accept the relevant agreements and policies.
Click the "I Agree" button at bottom.
Click the "Proceed with Order" button.
Costs shown will be waived for judges set up for a free subscription by their Circuit Clerk.
Click the "Register" button --unless you already have a Judici account, in which case, log in to review your settings.
Complete the required fields. Note in particular:
Type of Business:
Judges must use "Judicial"
Attorneys must use "Attorney" (not "Legal")
State's Attorneys in participating courts must use "State's Attorney"
Public Defenders in participating courts must use "Public Defender"
NOTE: Public Defenders and State's Attorneys must reach out to Judici Support through the Contacts Page and provide their ARDC if not prompted for it during registration.
Probation Officers must use "Probation Officer, State"
Court staff must select "Court"
Your ARN (ARDC) and e-mail address must match the info on file at each of your courts. Otherwise anyone could sign up to see your cases on Judici. Illinois Supreme Court policy limits some online access to the attorneys of record on the case. This effectively means that all correspondence from the court and Judici will go to the same, single address. This page offers instruction on how you can direct these emails to alternate addresses.
Verify your information, and click the "Submit Information" button.
County employee authorized users set up by a Circuit Clerk for a free subscription are finished.
Others must click the "Proceed with Order" button to process payment.
Submit your payment information.
Note: If you are not required to pay at this point, choose the "Subscription key" payment type. You'll be asked to supply a key. Judici will supply a list of those keys to someone in your organization.
Click the "Confirm" button at bottom to complete your order.
Verify your account information on Judici
Go to your account user information page to confirm that your information is correct, especially your ARN/ARDC # (if applicable). If it isn't, you will not have access to some of Courtlook's key features (e.g. case file document access). If your info is wrong, fix it or contact Judici with the e-mail address on your Judici account for help.
Verify your information with the courts where you practice
Check this page to see whether the ARDC# and email address match what the courts have on file. If they don't:
Contact the court and ask them to use the same ARDC# and email in their case management system. Otherwise, the documents on your cases will not be available in that court.
