16may
Congratulation​​s to the class of 2015!
Grad Adam Schmelkin '15 gave a moving—and funny—speech during the 40th Commencement at Vermont Law School, Saturday, May 16. He talked about the impact of "Camp VLS," including learning about humility, an openness to keep learning, and students' fear of losing phones in the composting toilets on campus. Adam also received the Learned Hand Award for Academic Excellence. ​Follow Vermont Law School on Facebook for more candid shots from commencement.
