​In addition to the traditional Juris Doctor degree, Vermont Law School offers a number of master’s degrees, LLM degrees, joint degrees, dual degrees with other academic institutions, certificate programs, and the renowned Summer Session program. These programs range from the Master of Environmental Law and Policy, which has been awarded to over 1,500 students since the program’s inception in 1978, to the LLM in Energy Law and Master of Energy Regulation and Law programs, which welcomed their first students in fall 2013. The master’s degrees may be completed in as little as one year or up to five years. Students have the choice and flexibility to complete a master’s degree on campus or online.
