United States District Court
Northern District Of Illinois
Local Criminal Rules
LCrR1.1. Adoption of Rules
These rules apply to the conduct of criminal proceedings in this Court. They
may be referred to as “local criminal rules” or, where reference is to a specific rule, “LCrR.[number].”
Unless otherwise indicated, reference in these rules to the United States
attorney shall also include an assistant United States attorney and an assistant
United States attorney general.
Reference in these rules to defendant’s attorney is in no way intended to preclude a defendant from proceeding pro se, in which case a reference to defendant’s attorney applies to defendant.
