Professional Networking Events

Promoting collegiality is a core component of the VBA mission. We offer dozens of professional and social events for our members. Network with other lawyers and legal professionals while building lifelong connections.

Law Sections

Our 19 law sections (20 including the judicial section, which is for judges only) connect practitioners in specific areas of the law. Sections facilitate the sharing of information in their practice areas to aid lawyers in the day-to-day representation of clients. Many sections host conferences and meetings to educate attorneys on practice trends that often provide continuing legal education (CLE) credits, as well as the opportunity to network with like-minded professionals.

The large and active Young Lawyers Division connects 1,400 practitioners beginning their law careers by offering social, educational and charitable events and programs.

The Law Practice Management Division helps all VBA members with the management and administration of their practices and with resources to maintain a healthy work/life balance.

Legislative Advocacy

The Virginia Bar Association is devoted to improving Virginia law. We actively propose and support before the Virginia General Assembly statutory changes that are in the public interest. Each year, our members analyze statutes and propose law changes to the Board of Governors for possible inclusion in the VBA’s legislative agenda.

Section Legislative Summaries

Every VBA section member receives a summary of legislation pertaining to that section after the close of the regular General Assembly session. Section members say these summaries can be helpful in flagging legislative actions of importance to them and to their clients.
