    Do You Know an Amazing Mentor? Submit Your Nomination for the Phoebe P. Hall Mentorship Award

    The Phoebe P.  Hall Mentorship Award was established by the Metro Richmond Women’s Bar Association in 2019 in memory of founding member Phoebe P. Hall to honor outstanding mentors. Phoebe had a career as a distinguished Virginia attorney and Rector of Virginia Commonwealth University. She was a pioneer in Virginia law when she co-founded Hall & Hall, PLC in 1969 with her late husband, Franklin P. Hall, former leader of the Virginia General Assembly, and was the winner of MRWBA’s Women of Achievement Award in 2006. She was inducted into the inaugural class of the Virginia Lawyers Weekly Hall of Fame in 2018. Over the years she served as a mentor and friend to many young attorneys, and we are pleased to honor her legacy with this award. 

    While there is no official form to complete, nominations should be submitted in writing on or before February 21, 2022. Click here for criteria and complete details.

    Legislative Update: New Date, New Format

    MRWBA looks forward to returning to Willow Oaks Country Club for our Annual Legislative Update on Wednesday, April 20th. Unlike prior years, the program will be more focused on questions and issues that are of importance to our members instead of each Legislator talking about what they thought was important during the General Assembly session. 

    Enrollment is limited, and could shift as COVID cases continue to fluctuate - so register early to be assured that you have a seat at the table.
