The VSB Communications Department oversees the production of publications for bar members, including Virginia Lawyer and Virginia Lawyer Register. Published six times a year, the magazine is distributed to all members of the Virginia State Bar, judges, law libraries, other state bar associations, the media and general subscribers.

The department coordinates production of more than 20 brochures and booklets on law related issues. These publications are for use by attorneys and the general public, and cover such topics as marriage, divorce, becoming an adult, senior citizens’ rights, intellectual property, bankruptcy, and information about the Virginia Lawyer Referral Service.

The VSB website, which is also maintained by the department, features current disciplinary actions, Rules of Professional Conduct, Legal Ethics Opinions, Unauthorized Practice of Law Opinions, real-time access to MCLE and membership data, public meeting notices, VSB governance, conferences, and services for lawyers and the public, including the Virginia Lawyer Referral Service, Fee Dispute Resolution, Clients’ Protection Fund, classified ads, and job postings.

The department produces Video Briefs, an informative series about the Virginia State Bar’s services and resources, and about legal topics of interest to the general public. The Virginia State Bar Family Law Section also produces the Spare the Child video, which is intended to help guide parents and families through the difficult and often overwhelming task of restructuring a family after a divorce.
