Legal Question in Wills and Trusts in Illinois

Obtaining a copy of a will

My grandmother recently passed away. I received a court paper from her lawyer stating that I am a legatee and have a right to contest the will, although I don't know what is in the will. How do I go about obtaining a copy of the will?
