Wins Award for Lake County Circuit Clerk Website is proud to announce that the Lake County Circuit Clerk's Office website has won the Interactive Media Awards Outstanding Achievement Award in the “Government” category. The Outstanding Achievement award is one of the top honors bestowed by the Interactive Media Awards. With an overall high score, the Lake County Circuit Clerk's Office website has proven to demonstrate the highest standards in website design and development.

The Lake County Circuit Clerk's Office provides accurate information and support to the judicial system. According to the Illinois State Statutes, the responsibility of the circuit clerk is to be the keeper of the court record.

The redesigned site has a new, streamlined interface, which makes finding useful information quick and easy. The site is also the ideal place for the Lake County Circuit Clerk's Office to easily house all of their PDFs and documents. The Clerk’s Office also incorporated responsive design for optimal viewing across any device, whether desktop, laptop, tablet, or mobile.

The judging consisted of various criteria, including design, usability, innovative technical features, standards compliance and content. In order to win this award level, the site had to meet strict guidelines in each area — an achievement only a fraction of sites in the IMA competition earn each quarter.

Congratulations to all involved, especially the team at Lake County Circuit Clerk's Office, for all the hard work!
