Oppose Virginia State Bar Decision to Cancel Legal Seminar in Israel

On Friday, March 27 after business hours Kevin E. Martingayle, the Virginia State Bar president, released a statement that they were cancelling their Midyear Legal Seminar trip in Jerusalem. The JCRC found this decision reprehensible. The only way to correct this is to reschedule the trip to Israel. You can help! If you are a licensed attorney in the Commonwealth of Virginia, please select this link to send a letter to members of the Executive Committee of the Virginia State Bar encouraging them to reinstate the Israel trip.
