The Virginia State Bar Council is expected to vote later this month on whether attorneys who represent private clients should be required to have legal malpractice insurance.
While we await the decision, VLW would like to know your opinion.
Support the proposal ? Think it’s bad news for lawyers? You you can let us know where you stand by taking the VLW poll, a new feature located at the bottom right of our homepage.
[If you’d like more background information on the issue, the VSB has outlined the proposal, the pros and cons and various ways to provide such insurance at http://www.vsb.org/site/news/item/mandatory-malp-ins-080408/.]
