Lawyer Insurance Committee

The Special Committee on Lawyer Insurance monitors and evaluates the market for lawyer malpractice insurance in Virginia and makes recommendations to the executive committee and council on whether the Virginia State Bar should endorse a particular underwriter of insurance, and if so, on what terms and conditions.

The committee members are appointed by the VSB President-elect after volunteers are solicited in the fall in Virginia Lawyer magazine, in emails, and online; applications are due in February. Applicants send a brief résumé and fill out a committee preference form.  

Upcoming meetings may be found on the Calendar and are subject to the Virginia Freedom of Information Act. Agendas and call in numbers will be provided on the meeting entry on the Calendar.
