You will learn about changes in the law of license suspensions including the July 1, 2019, Virginia law change prohibiting license suspension solely for failure to pay court costs. You will hear from a panel of judges who will share their views from the bench and how to be a more effective advocate for your client.

The program will end with ethical considerations specific to traffic cases.
