Stop Cyberbullying

Shutdown Cyberbullying - An initiative of the Virginia State Bar Young Lawyers Conference

The Virginia Department of Education Annual Discipline, Crime, and Violence Report defines bullying as "repeated negative behaviors intended to frighten or cause harm" that may include, but are not limited to, verbal or written threats or physical harm. Non-criminal behavior associated with bullying includes intimidation, taunting, name-calling, and insults. The YLC has assembled materials to help young attorneys engage the community on this issue.


Engage our youth! This page has resources you can take to your local school to present to a class. The video below and the materials on the right side of this page will fill a significant amount of class time and provide students with a good framework on dealing with bullying in their lives.


Join the campaign to stop bullying and give students resources and tools to deal with the problems bullying presents.  For more information, contact the Co-chairs of the Children and the Law Crystal Shin ( or Michael Snodgrass (
