VSB to Unveil a New Lawyer Portal and Website in Summer 2022

UPDATE 5/11/22: Due to an unanticipated change with the outside vendor’s solutions lead, we will delay the go-live of our new database and website until after the 2022–23 dues season deadline. The new VSB website and login is planned to soft launch in August 2022. During a transition phase [date TBD], lawyers will be unable to update MCLE records, make payments, or update contact information. All other functions will remain available. Please check your email for communications on the status of the new website.


UPDATE 4/5/22: The lawyer portal will no longer be unavailable beginning April 8. We have extended that timeline until future notice as we work out a few unexpected issues with the transition. We will send an email update with the new information shortly, but until that time, all lawyer portal activities remain active.


Plan Ahead: VSB to Unveil a New Lawyer Portal and Website in April

March 17, 2022

As we prepare to launch a new lawyer portal and database, some services on the lawyer login page that have been familiar to Virginia lawyers will be inaccessible after 11:59 pm on April 7 until the new website launches by April 18. Although the login area will be unavailable, the website will remain live.

The new VSB website and login will soft launch in mid-April. During this transition phase, April 8–18,  lawyers will be unable to use some of the services normally available after they log in, including:

  • updating MCLE records
  • making payments
  • updating contact info

Once the new portal and website are live, lawyers will be able to handle regulatory compliance functions online, including paying annual dues and fees, certifying MCLE attendance, updating their contact information, and accessing Fastcase Legal Research and Court forms. The new system is mobile friendly and scalable to various devices. 

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.

If you anticipate an address or email change, or have CLE hours you would like to add, please do so before 11:59 pm on April 7, or wait until after the April 18 launch.

Please check your email frequently for communications on the status of the new login and website as we transition to a system to better serve Virginia’s lawyers. Email your questions to vsbinfo@vsb.org.
