An article by Vermont Law School student Garrett Chrostek '12, titled "A Critique of Vermont's Right-To-Farm Law and Proposals for Better Protecting the State's Agricultural Future," has been selected as VLS's official entry in the 2012 Burton Distinguished Legal Writing Award competition.
The article, which was published in the Vermont Law Review in 2011, evaluates Vermont's right-to-farm law and makes concrete suggestions for improving it.
