‚ÄčOn October 12, the VLS Dispute Resolution Program hosted the 30th Anniversary Conference, The Mediator and Public Policy, exploring the controversy, current status, and future prospects of mediation in the public arena. The conference brought together John McCrory, Pepperdine University School of Law, Joseph Stulberg, The Ohio State University Moritz College of Law, and Lawrence Susskind, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, authors of three seminal articles, published in the Vermont Law Review in 1981, that launched a nationwide discussion on the role of mediation in public conflicts.

 
 

What does it mean to be an advocate?

Does it mean you win at all costs or are you committed to problem solving? For over 30 years, our Program has produced advocates who are well-rounded and effective at meeting their client's needs. The Dispute Resolution Program at Vermont Law School lets students explore the theoretical and practical aspects of more efficient and cooperative processes for dispute resolution through a variety of clinics, courses, conferences, workshops, and research offerings. Students learn basic skills in class, perfect them in clinics, study them in advanced research courses, and learn from practitioners through the semester in practice program. For those looking for intense training in a short period, join us for our summer sessions and learn from leaders from across the country.
