What to Expect

The YLD's 2020 Fall Meeting will be an in-person, but socially distanced, gathering of friends and colleagues at the newly renovated Blackburn Inn (formerly the Western State Hospital and a correctional facility). 

Bring your fanciest mask and join us for our quarterly meeting, 2.0 credits of CLE, and an afternoon of local activities and exploring all that Staunton and the surrounding area has to offer. Every effort is being made for outdoor dining options.


  • Meet us for dinner in Staunton at 6:00 p.m.


  • YLD meeting
  • MCLE Program: Avoiding Casualties in Unfamiliar Waters: Hidden Transportation Nuances That Can Sink a Case | Dustin M. Paul, Vandeventer Black
