Lifetime Bar Service Award

The Edward L. Chambers Jr. Lifetime Bar Service Award was established by the Virginia State Bar in 2020 in memory of Ed Chambers to honor his longstanding, extensive, and selfless volunteer work with the Virginia State Bar.

The award honors those who serve extraordinarily and selflessly during their career without recognition commensurate to the level of their service to the Virginia State Bar. The award recognizes exemplary Virginia lawyers who have enhanced the legal profession in Virginia by their extensive and longstanding commitment of time, knowledge, and leadership on Virginia State Bar boards, committees, sections, or conferences.

The award is not designed to recognize service arising out of a role as President of the Virginia State Bar or service as a full-time judge or justice. A candidate must be a member, in good standing, with no history of public discipline.

Nominations are due by February 1 each year, with the award announced by April 1. Nominations should be addressed to Chambers Award Committee, chambersaward@vsb.org. Any questions should be addressed to Maureen Stengel, (804) 775-0517.

The nomination form for the award has information on the nomination process included.
