This initiative offers a monetary award to a graduating law student who intends to work as an in-house corporate counsel and to sit for the Virginia Bar Exam that will cover the full expenses of the VBBE application, including the Character & Fitness portion, and the first year’s VSB membership dues.  Anyone who has already accepted an offer of an employment that includes a comparable benefit is not eligible for the award.  Resumes, transcripts, GPAs, etc. will not be solicited or accepted from applicants, and the selection of the winner will be made by the Corporate Counsel Section solely on the basis of a 300-word or less essay that answers the following question:

“Presuming you have landed your ideal in-house corporate legal job, how do you now improve the practice of law in Virginia?”
