The VBA Voice
The independent voice of Virginia lawyers
The VBA is reviving and reinventing The VBA Voice emails to keep you informed and to try to assist you in navigating your practice, your safety and your health in these unprecedented times, starting with a Law Practice Telephonic Forum on Friday.

As it has for 132 years, the VBA stands for professionalism, advocacy, collegiality and service. Your association is here for you.
130th Summer Meeting
While social distancing is recommended now and large gatherings must be postponed, the VBA is looking at the safest approach to the 130th Summer Meeting . The hope is to be able to move forward with a family-friendly event at The Omni Homestead Resort, July 23-25, 2020. Save the date and the VBA will provide updates as it monitors the COVID-19 situation.
