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 and handouts from each session are available online.
