Commonwealth’s Attorney Inducted As Virginia Law Foundation Fellow

Halifax County Commonwealth’s Attorney Kimberly S. White was among 26 lawyers inducted into the Virginia Law Foundation 2010 Class of Fellows at a dinner meeting held Thursday in Williamsburg during the Virginia Bar Association’s Annual Meeting.

Guest speaker for the occasion was Dennis Gartman, financial analyst and author of the “Gartman Letter.”

Induction as a Fellow of the Virginia Law Foundation is a special honor conferred by the VLF Board on selected Virginia attorneys, law professors and retired members of the judiciary who are deemed to be outstanding in their profession and in their community.

The current Fellows membership totals 378.

The Fellows organization is governed by a Fellows Council appointed by the VLF Board of Directors. The Fellows Council assists the foundation in the fulfillment of its mission and operates a mentor program for new lawyers.

Established in 1974, the Virginia Law Foundation serves as the non-profit vehicle for Virginia lawyers seeking to improve the administration of justice and promote the rule of law throughout the state.

It has provided nearly $23 million in grants to support law-related projects throughout Virginia.

The Virginia Law Foundation Fellows program was created in 1983 by the Board of Governors to encourage and recognize excellence in the practice of law and public service, and to support the programs and objectives of the foundation.
