The Virginia State Bar has been asked by Senator Thomas K.  Norment, Jr., chair of the Senate Courts of Justice Committee, and Delegate David B. Albo, chair of the House Courts of Justice Committee, to evaluate judicial candidates for a Court of Appeals vacancy.

Candidates who wish to be evaluated by the VSB are asked to submit by end of business February 1, 2012, a résumé, a brief writing sample, and responses to a questionnaire available on the Virginia State Bar website.

Submissions should be sent electronically, and the original questionnaire should be submitted by mail. Addresses are at the end of the form.  Interviews will be held on February 16, 2012, at the Virginia State Bar office at 707 E. Main Street, Suite 1500, Richmond. Contact VSB staff member Asha Holloman, holloman@vsb.org, (804) 775-0551, with questions.

Other statewide bar groups will evaluate candidates as well. Candidates should contact other statewide bar groups from the statewide bar group contact list if they wish to be evaluated by those groups.

The General Assembly questionnaire form is available through the Virginia Division of Legislative Services. The Appellate Court Questionnaire should be submitted to Mary Kate Felch at the Division of Legislative Services.
