Since inception in 1980, the Annual Statewide Legal Aid Conference has been a no cost, three-day conference for Virginia’s Legal Aid community.  Sponsorships are vital to keeping this comprehensive civil legal issues training free to the Legal Aid community so that their limited financial resources can be utilized for direct client services.  For the 2016 conference, we are very grateful and honored for our Conference Grantor and Sponsors.
