Virginia State Bar to Unveil New Website and Lawyer Portal in April

​As the VSB prepares to launch a new lawyer portal and database, we ask for your patience as some services on the website and lawyer login page will be inaccessible after 4:45 pm on March 24 until the new website soft launches by April 4.

During a transition phase beginning March 24, lawyers will be unable to: 

  • update MCLE records
  • make payments
  • update contact information

Lawyers will be able to access to Fastcase and forms, as well as signing up for spring CLEs and the VSB Annual Meeting in June will remain available during the transition. 

Once the new portal and website are live, lawyers will again be able to handle regulatory compliance functions online, including paying annual dues and fees, certifying MCLE attendance, updating their contact information, and continued access to Fastcase and Court forms. After work is complete, lawyers will also be able to manage their information, sign up online for some VSB-sponsored CLEs and events, and submit legal ethics questions in one place—with one username and one password.

The 10-day delay in bringing services online is due to the complexity of the project and data transfer. Since approximately 2004, the VSB has used a custom-built, on-premises, SQL server database to store data on all 50,000+ VSB members. This database has outlived its useful service life and needed to be replaced. At the end of 2020, the VSB staff identified a future database solution and decided to transition to iMIS Cloud Enterprise. Part of the iMIS upgrade will also incorporate a new website for the VSB with eventual increased integration with the membership database. The new system is secure, mobile friendly, and scalable to various devices. 

If you anticipate an address or email change, or have CLE hours you would like to add, please do so and log out before 4:45 pm on March 24, or wait until after the April 4 launch.

Please check your email for additional communications on the status of the new login and the VSB website news page as we transition to a system to better serve Virginia’s lawyers. Email your questions to
