Judge Marnie M. Slavin took the Oath of Office as circuit judge in the Third Sub-Circuit of the 19th Judicial Circuit of the Illinois Supreme Court, effective Dec. 7.

She filled the position previously held by Judge Thomas M. Schippers, who passed away on Sept. 6, 2019.

 

"As a judge, fairness, equity, and justice will be my guiding principles. Being a judge is a tremendous responsibility, and one that will be taken seriously. Every person coming into my courtroom will have their voice heard and justice will be delivered swiftly. I am honored and humbled to serve our Lake County community," Slavin said.

Slavin received her Bachelor of Arts in History from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 1998 and earned her Doctor of Jurisprudence in 2001 from Indiana University Bloomington.

She previously served as an assistant public defender in Kane and DuPage counties before serving as a criminal and juvenile sole practitioner. Slavin has served on District 102 Aptakisic-Tripp's Board of Education for five and a half years.

Slavin resides in Buffalo Grove with her husband Scott and their twins.

"We welcome Judge Slavin to the 19th Judicial Circuit. We are confident that she will uphold the integrity and independence of the judiciary and help us carry out our most sacred duty, to serve all citizens of Lake County fairly, impartially and diligently," Chief Judge Diane E. Winter said.

Winter administered the Oaths of Office for elected and retained circuit judges of the 19th Judicial Circuit, Judge James K. Booras and Judge Valerie Boettle-Ceckowski.

"The 19th Judicial Circuit is fortunate to have professional, fair-minded, and knowledgeable judges continue to serve the people of Lake County. Their outstanding attributes and years of experience are an invaluable asset to the circuit," Winter said.
