Vermont Law School Juris Doctor (JD)

Earning a Juris Doctor from Vermont Law School indicates dedication and commitment, not just to the legal profession, but to making an impact through the law.

While preparing for general practice in all 50 states, you’ll develop the knowledge and acquire the skills needed for leadership in environmental law, criminal law, dispute resolution, energy law, international and comparative law, land use, or water resources law.

The core curriculum focuses on legal doctrine and analysis, emphasizes the broader social context of the law, and provides education in the skills and values required for effective law practice. In the first year, you’ll build a foundation for legal study through exposure to basic subjects, the techniques of legal analysis, fundamental legal skills, and perspectives on the origins, function, and development of the legal system. During your second and third years, you’ll use Vermont Law School’s extensive course catalog to focus on the issue areas in which you’d like to work and lead.

To accommodate the financial realities of many students, Vermont Law School offers accelerated two-year and extended four-year enrollment options for the JD program.
