Judicial Interviews Conducted for the Thirty-First Circuit of Virginia

The Prince Williams Chapter of the Virginia Women Attorneys Association's Judicial Screening Committee conducted interviews of applicants on November 15, 2018 for the Thirty-First Circuit of Virginia, as a result of the General Assembly's anticipated funding of a sixth Circuit Court seat. Because the potential exists that the successful candidate for the vacancy on the Circuit Court may come from a lower court, a vacancy on either the General District Court or J&DR Court may also be created.


Law Clerk Reception

The Prince William Chapter hosted a law clerk reception at Farell & Croft PC in Manassas, VA on September 27, 2018 to welcome the newest group of law clerks to the Circuit Court.
