Offit Kurman Attorney Doug Kay Selected to Faculty of Virginia Rules and Professional Conduct Course

Richmond, VA | July 28, 2017

Offit Kurman principal attorney, Douglas Kay, was selected to join the faculty of the Virginia State Bar Harry L. Carrico Professionalism Course.  In December 1988, the Virginia State Bar implemented a Rule of this Court requiring all newly-licensed Virginia lawyers to attend a course on the Virginia Rules of Professional Conduct and professionalism in general. Now we begin its twenty-ninth year. The course has received national acclaim among bar organizations. The success of this program is attributable to the strength of its faculty. Upon the recommendation of the Virginia State Bar Professionalism Committee, Doug has been invited to join the faculty for a three-year term, commencing October 2017 and concluding September 2020.


The faculty for this course consists of some of Virginia’s best judges and lawyers. The Professionalism Committee believes the most effective way to instill in their new lawyers the fundamental values of the profession is to have their most outstanding lawyers and judges teach them.
