Registration & Space Limitations

This outstanding program is being offered at no charge, as a service to members of the Virginia State Bar. Virginia lawyers engaged in the representation of Virginia’s indigent criminal population, either as public defenders or as court appointed counsel, are the target audience for this seminar. At the Chief Justice’s request, registration preference will be given to these two constituencies.

The seminar format will be a live video conference, which will allow us to accommodate a greater number of participants.


Upon receipt of your registration, The VSB will send an email confirmation every Monday to those who have registered the previous week.


You may cancel your own registration via the confirmation email you receive or you may direct your inquiries to Kim Karnes, Bar Services Dept., Virginia State Bar:; (804) 775-0515; Fax (804) 775-0501.

Written Materials

Each seminar attendee will receive a Sharepoint link to the written materials & power point presentations for the seminar, one week in advance. 


NOTE:  lf you have already registered for this event, the registration link above will direct you to the webinar page that will go live on May 7th. No further action is required.
