Dear Virginia Judges and Lawyers,

As all of you are aware, we are working through an unprecedented health crisis due to COVID-19. Governor Northam has issued Executive Order 51 declaring a state of emergency until June 10, 2020, the Supreme Court of Virginia has declared a judicial emergency from March 16 until April 6, 2020, and the Court of Appeals has also issued an order outlining changes in response to the pandemic.

The functions of the Bar are being carried out under evolving protocols.

As a result of this health crisis, the Virginia State Bar must cancel all meetings and events, with very limited exceptions. The status of meetings will continue to be updated on the events page of the VSB website .

We have also created a new webpage that discusses how COVID-19 is affecting the legal profession in the Commonwealth.
For further information regarding COVID-19, please visit the  Centers for Disease Control  and the  Virginia Department of Health .
Karen A. Gould
Executive Director
