Due to the University of Richmond’s closure as a response to COVID-19, the Symposium will not be held as a live event. JOLT will be holding a virtual Symposium at the end of April. The date will be announced as soon as possible. We will provide updates here as they become available. Please continue to register for the event so we can provide you with email updates. Thank you for understanding.
