About the Cover

The Conference of Local and Specialty Bar Associations sponsored this issue of Virginia Lawyer. As social distancing continues in response to the ongoing pandemic, a cover design was created to illustrate the multiple parts that make up the whole of the CLSBA while protecting the board members. Thank you to CLSBA staff liaison Paulette Davidson for assisting with the issue. Cover art montage by Kaylin Bowen.
