The Virginia State Bar’s Criminal Law Section, together with the Young Lawyers Conference, wants to support young lawyers practicing criminal law throughout the Commonwealth.  Five successful applicants will be selected as Criminal Law Fellows and receive free tuition and free hotel accommodations for the 53rd Annual Criminal Law Seminar on February 3rd in Charlottesville or February 10th in Williamsburg.

The Criminal Law Seminar is a phenomenal way to earn CLE credits and network with fellow criminal law practitioners, commonwealth’s attorneys, and judges.  Topics include criminal law developments; admission of the defendant's mental condition; cross-examination and the proffer; what to do with a guilty verdict; the 2022 legislative update; and ethics in criminal practice.

To apply, send a copy of your resume and a short statement of interest (< 500 words) to bshute@mcguirewoods.com.  Please include your preferred seminar location in the email. Participants will be chosen by members of the YLC and Criminal Law Section.  To be eligible you must be a member of the YLC (under 36 years of age or within your first three years of practice), but do not have to be a current member of the Criminal Law Section.

Deadline to apply is January 18. Winners will be notified by January 23.
