The Prince William County Bar Association will receive two awards from the Conference of Local Bar Associations during the Virginia State Bar Annual Meeting. The awards recognize projects that serve the bench, the bar, and the people of Virginia.

Award of Merit for Excellence in Bar Projects: The bar association, working with the Prince William County Area Agency on Aging, the Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 7589, and the American Legion, sponsored the first Wills for Veterans program in Virginia. The program assists local veterans with end-of-life documents, including simple wills, powers of attorney, and medical directives. The program served sixty-six veterans and spouses. The Bar Association is a first-time awardee.

Certificate of Achievement: The Virginia Access to Justice Commission asked the association to sponsor the first Access to Justice Summit by a local bar association in the state. The goal was to heighten awareness of and support of existing pro bono programs and to identify unmet needs. Following the summit, every one of the association’s six existing pro bono programs received pledges of support.
