Did You Know?

The Hampton Roads Chapter was formed in 1992 as the South Hampton Roads Chapter. It draws its members from a wide geographic area, including Newport News and Hampton on the Peninsula, as well as Virginia Beach, Norfolk, Chesapeake, Portsmouth, and Suffolk on the Southside. The Chapter's goals include providing members with enhanced benefits such as increased opportunities for networking, referrals, and social interaction with peers and members of the judiciary.

Hampton Roads Chapter 100 Years of Women Leaders in the Law

100 Years of Women Leaders in the Law

The year 2020 marks 100 years since the General Assembly voted to admit women to the Virginia State Bar.

Our lunch panel on January 28, 2020 celebrated this occasion with words of wisdom from Justice Cleo E. Powell, Anita Poston, and Vanessa T. Valldejuli.  It was a discussion our attendees from the local judiciary,  bar, and law school are not soon to forget.  We are honored to recognize these women as outstanding women leaders in the law. 

Special thank you to our panel moderator, Dean Kimberly Van Essendelft, Regent University School of Law, and our sponsors Pender & Coward, P.C.  and Aloupas Law, PLLC  for their generous support!
