The Criminal Law Clinic is a unique opportunity for students who have determined that they are serious about criminal law as a career. The clinic is taught by prosecutors and defense attorneys, all of whom are leading practitioners in the Vermont criminal law bar and members of the VLS criminal law faculty: Professors Robert Sand, Anna Saxman, David Cahill, and Brian Marsicovetere. Students enrolled in the clinic will participate in a class that meets once a week for two hours, co-taught by the professors. For their practicum students will work on real criminal cases and may practice in Vermont courts under the direct supervision of Professors Sand, Saxman, Cahill and Marsicovetere.

This is a 6 credit course: 2 credit hours of classroom once a week for 2 hours; and 4 credit hours of clinic work twice a week for 8 hours each day. In the summer the course is offered for 9 credits, 7 are clinic work twice a week and 2 are classroom credits. Specific application procedures apply.
