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.
