Our Plans for 2019-2020
The editors are planning two additional issues for the 2019-2020 bar year. In our first issue, we covered the Forum for Diversity and Inclusion, providing you with the panels that invoked much constructive discussion. Our second issue covered Diversity Conference activities as well as profiling a Brave Little Virginian.
We will use our third issue to profile how legal tech is expanding access to justice for underserved populations. The issue will also provide some tips and tricks to use tech to your advantage in law practice.
Our final issue of 2019-2020 will focus on well-being. There has been significant activity in this field over the past couple of years. We will profile leaders who have been taking on innovative approaches and provide practical tips to ease stress and improve your health.
We will continue to cover Diversity Conference events and participation at Virginia State Bar events. We hope that you enjoy reading about the Conference’s activities and even may want to assist us with covering the events.
As we continue through the year, we will still take articles that fall outside of these issue themes. Once you submit your idea, we will work with you to ensure the best place for your submission.
