Rep. Olsen Joins Local Officials in Ribbon Cutting for Debut of Bicentennial of Illinois Law Exhibit at COD

State Representative David S. Olsen (R-Downers Grove) was in attendance September 21, as the College of DuPage (COD) debuted a traveling Bicentennial of Illinois Law Exhibit at the college’s Student Service Center in Glen Ellyn.

The exhibit features prominent lawyers and cases in Illinois history and a historical look back at the judiciary’s first 200 years in Illinois. “As we celebrate the Bicentennial of our great State, it is an honor to have the College of DuPage chosen as the site to debut this important and educational exhibit,” said Olsen, a former board member and Vice Chair of the COD Board of Trustees. “The history of Illinois’ most important and influential cases and lawyers is a rich part of our history, and I am pleased to know that Illinoisans from across the state will be able to enjoy it.”

The exhibit is one of several bicentennial activities sponsored by the Illinois Supreme Court Historic Preservation Commission to commemorate 200 years of the Illinois judicial branch. The traveling exhibit will remain at COD through October 26.
