Past Presidents

The Office of President of the Will County Bar Association is a tradition steeped in history. Many men and women have given years of service on the Board of Directors prior to serving as President. From time to time, the past presidents of the Bar Association reconvene to assist the Bar in special events and to provide input on policy and programs.

To commemorate their service, a plaque hangs on the fourth floor of the courthouse at 14 W. Jefferson St. in Joliet and their names are listed below:
