Participating Vermont Law School Programs

At Vermont Law School, learning happens everywhere: on campus—in classrooms, conference rooms, the library, and in dinner seminars—and off campus—in courtrooms, client offices, town meetings, mediation sessions, depositions, and legislative hearing rooms. It’s a learning environment driven by students who are more intent on collaboration than on competition and reflects the same commitment to applied learning Warren Wilson students relish. Participating programs include:
