The Virginia Law Foundation is currently seeking nominees for the next class of Virginia Law Foundation Fellows.
According to the foundation, Fellows “are recognized as leaders in the profession, not just in their practices but in their communities.”
Eligible candidates must be active or associate members of the Virginia State Bar for at least 10 years, a Virginia resident, “a person of integrity and character who maintains and upholds the highest standards of the profession” and “an outstanding member in their community who is distinguished in the practice of law.”
In addition to attorneys, retired and senior status judges can also be nominated. However, sitting full-time judges are not eligible to become a Fellow while on the bench.
In January, 27 members were inducted in the 2022 Class of Fellows, including active attorneys and retired judges. The induction traditionally takes place during the January meeting of the Virginia Bar Association, but has been held virtually for the last two years due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Confidential nominations for the 2023 class can be sent via mail or email to the Virginia Law Foundation by June 15.
More information on how to nominate candidates can be found on the Virginia Law Foundation’s website.
