Debate Plans

Beginning in 1985, The Virginia Bar Association has hosted a debate of the candidates for statewide office. With one of Virginia’s U.S. Senate seats on the fall 2018 ballot, the VBA’s 128th Summer Meeting will provide a forum for qualifying candidates.

Plans are underway to host the Virginia U.S. Senatorial Candidates Debate at 11 a.m. July 21, with Judy Woodruff, anchor and managing editor of “PBS NewsHour,” returning as moderator. Meeting registrants, their guests and members of the public are welcome to attend in person at no charge. Or watch the debate live-stream online.

Have a question or two for the candidates? Please share.

Staying Green in 2018

Like last year, the VBA will provide all written materials for MCLE programming online only. That's right, no more heavy packets of paper to lug around the conference center. Bring your laptop or e-device, sign on to the conference center Wi-Fi and access your materials from our website. Prefer hard copies? Be sure to print at home or work before arriving at the Homestead. All registrants are being notified of the link to access MCLE written materials.
