Supervisory role has Homewood’s Barbara Dawkins shaping new lawyers

Barbara Dawkins doesn’t know anything about baseball. She loves Homewood, though, so she signed up to volunteer as B-league president of Homewood Baseball for the 2019 season. Dawkins’ true specialty is law, and after 20 years of litigation, she is now a supervisor of the Juvenile Justice Division of the Cook County State’s Attorney’s Office, where she supervises all suburban juvenile prosecutions.
