Attempting to reduce the confusion surrounding Illinois judgment lien law, the author explores contradictory decisions of the past involving levy and execution, chancery's creditor's bill, and citation to discover assets. The article calls for clarification and specific reforms of Illinois's Article XII of the Code of Civil Procedure to conform judgment collection procedures with modern practice, the Bankruptcy Code, and the UCC.
