The Roanoke Bar Association presented a new public education program entitled You and the Law in March 2010, March 2011, May 2012, and April 2013.  In April 2014 the Roanoke Law Foundation took over the project. This program was designed to educate the public about the legal system in order to make citizens' interaction with the system more efficient and less frustrating.

You and the Law covers basic information relating to practices and procedures in the general district courts and the circuit courts, issues where there may be misunderstanding or a lack of understanding, and substantive information relating to specific areas of the law.  Guest speakers include judges and local attorneys who specialize in each of the topics covered.

You and the Law has been featured on Round Roanoke, Daytime Blue Ridge, and The Morning Show.   Videos from 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2013 are available online; the 2014 video is coming soon.   The handouts from the 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, and 2014 sessions are available in .pdf format.

Upcoming Sessions:  Our plans are to make You and the Law available on an annual basis.  As soon as sessions are scheduled, they will be posted on this web site.

Email Notification: If you would like to receive an email concerning the schedule for You and the Law, please send your name and email address to roanokelawfoundation@earthlink.net. You email address will be used only for this purpose and will not be shared.

Thank you for your interest in You and the Law!
