From the desk of the VSB President - March, 2014

As we move forward in the 21st Century, our profession needs to be representative of our clients. The mission of the Diversity Conference is to promote diversity in all aspects of the legal profession. We are writing to ask your help in fulfilling that mission.

Diversity Conference enrollment is free, takes no more than two minutes – and everyone is eligible to join. Just visit and sign up. As president of the VSB, I hope you will take those two minutes.

The concept of the Diversity Conference was endorsed by the Supreme Court of Virginia and was unanimously endorsed in a resolution passed by the Virginia Senate. The core concepts of diversity are education, awareness, and inclusion. Please join with us to accomplish these goals through Diversity Conference membership!
