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 VLS has awarded to over 2,500 students since the program’s inception in 1978, to the LLM in Food and Agriculture Law, which welcomed the first students in fall 2015. 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 or LLM degree on campus or online, or a hybrid of both. To see our 2019-2020 Environmental Course List, click here.
