United States Marshal

Application for U.S. Marshal for the Northern District of Illinois

Applicants for the position of U.S. Marshal for the Northern District of Illinois should submit 7 hard copies of their completed application package - including this questionnaire, a cover letter explaining the applicant’s interest in and qualifications for the position, and any supplementary material requested in the questionnaire - to Senator Durbin's Chicago office:

 

230 S. Dearborn Street

Suite 3892

Chicago, Illinois 60604

 

THE DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSION OF COMPLETED APPLICATIONS IS COB Tuesday, October 7.

 

The screening committee will conduct an open application process and will screen applicants with the goal of recommending candidates of top quality and integrity to Senators Durbin and Kirk.

 

The Senators will then review the screening committee’s recommendations, conduct interviews of finalists and – in consultation with one another – agree on a list of names to provide to the White House.

 

Once the President submits a nomination to the U.S. Senate, the nominee will be reviewed by the Senate Judiciary Committee, of which Senator Durbin is a member, and will receive a vote in the committee. The approval of both home state Senators is required for the Senate Judiciary Committee to take up and consider a U.S. Marshal nominee. If a nomination is approved by the Judiciary Committee, the nomination will be sent to the full Senate for consideration.

 

Until a new U.S. Marshal is confirmed by the Senate, Joel Kirch will serve as Acting U.S. Marshal for the Northern District of Illinois.

   

If you have any questions, please contact Senator Durbin's office at 202-224-2152.
