Anisa Jordan, of The Jordan Law Firm, in Arlington Heights, has been appointed as a member of the Traffic Laws & Courts Section Council of the Illinois State Bar Association (ISBA).
The 33,000-member association, with offices in Springfield and Chicago, provides professional services to Illinois lawyers, and education and services to the public.
“Committee and section council members take time from their busy schedules to help their profession while continuing to serve the needs of their clients,” said Vincent F. Cornelius, of Joliet, ISBA President for 2016-2017. “These lawyers play a key role in helping the bar association serve its members and the public.”
Committees have the responsibility for specific programs and activities in such areas as professional ethics and delivery of legal services. Sections provide continuing education and legislative services to lawyers who practice in a specific area of law. Each section is governed by a council appointed by the state bar president. Judges and non-lawyers also serve on committees and section councils.
Anisa Jordan received her B.A. from the University of Alabama at Birmingham in 2003 and her J.D. from DePaul University College of Law in 2009.
