Speaking of the Law:
The Virginia State Bar Speakers Bureau
Adopting a child, buying a home, making a will . . . . Few of us can go through life without facing situations that require further information about the law. As a free public service, the Virginia State Bar offers your school, community group or civic organization an opportunity to listen to a legal expert who will provide general background information on any number of important law-related topics that affect our lives.
At your request, we will match your organization with a volunteer lawyer in your community to speak to your group on any of the topics below, or on a topic of your choice, if available.
Interested in Obtaining a Speaker?
Please review the available topics before requesting a speaker. If you would like to request a topic not listed, please indicate so on the request form, and we will make every effort to accommodate your request.
Once you’ve chosen a topic, please fill out the request form (pdf*), providing us with information about your group, the topic you’re interested in, and the date you need the speaker. We will make every effort to provide a lively, informative program for your group.
Please allow four weeks notice, at minimum. Members of our Speakers Bureau are available on a first come first serve basis.
