Welcome to the Illinois Association
of Problem-Solving Courts

Our Mission: To promote Problem-Solving Courts in Illinois by providing education, assistance, training, and development through collaboration of behavioral health and justice systems.

Message from the President

After thoughtful deliberation, ILAPSC has made the difficult decision to transition the ILAPSC Annual Conference 2020 from an in-person meeting to a virtual experience.

As you are aware, the ability to host a large-scale live event this fall remains unknown, and we are committed to the health and safety of all our attendees, presenters, sponsors and exhibitors. We also recognize that many people and organizations now face tough budget decisions, especially related to travel and professional development opportunities, that may make the trip to Bloomington less feasible.

While we are not able to meet in person, we are committed to facilitating invaluable connections and we are excited about the opportunity to deliver the conference remotely. A virtual platform has the potential to connect even more people within the State to information and resources needed during this critical time.

We are excited to announce that registration is now open for the 2020 ILAPSC Virtual Conference. Thank you for your patience during this transition, and we look forward to seeing you virtually in October.


Janet Holmgren, President
Illinois Association of Problem-Solving Courts

Illinois Problem Solving Court Standards & Certification Process

All Problem-Solving Courts (adult courts as labeled in the Standards) have to be certified by the Supreme Court. Any new Problem-Solving Court must be certified prior to starting.
