Legal Writing Program

Welcome to the Legal Writing Program at Vermont Law School!

Our dedicated staff of experienced professors are committed to making every student a better writer. We have developed a rigorous, three-semester program that engages students with real-world assignments. These assignments—and the detailed feedback from the professors are designed to make students “practice ready” for their summer internships or post-JD positions. Through this effort, VLS students have a regional and national reputation for excellence in legal writing. We encourage you to explore these pages to learn how our program can help you master the art of legal writing.
