Legislative Clinic

About this Course

Students are assigned to a standing committee of the Vermont General Assembly, under the supervision of the committee's chair and a legislative counsel, and are required to complete legal research and drafting projects relating to that particular committee's pending legislation.  Students are required to be in attendance at the General Assembly in Montpelier for at least two days each week.  The course runs concurrently with the session of the General Assembly, which means that it begins in early January and concludes in April.
