VBA is an on (and off) line resource for attorneys, and other legal professionals.
Legal professionals needed a better way to connect and share, a spot to learn (from trusted sources), and a place to just relax and be how lawyers and legal people are when together – wickedly smart and usually very funny. 😉
Andrea learned long ago how working on and through the web can get lonely – especially for one used to the hustle and bustle of a law office and she also came to realize there was no place for all legal professionals (not JUST attorneys OR admins OR IT people) to interact and share the information (and stories) of those who work at law firms. So she created The Virtual Bar.
The VBA is a place for all legal professionals to meet, mingle, mix and share in an inclusive and welcoming atmosphere. In fact, the only requirement for membership is active employment at a law firm.
Members can use the VBA for purely educational and professional purposes by attending the monthly webinars & virtual meet-n-greets, or get to connect on a more personal level at the live lunches, happy hours and other VBA social events hosted in exciting locations like New York, Boston & Seattle. The VBA events calendar lists upcoming dates and locations.
Members also receive discounts and other perks.
