The Accelerated Juris Doctor program at Vermont Law and Graduate School enables students to earn a JD degree in less time and to reduce costs associated with living expenses while enrolled.

Fall Start Two-Year Accelerated JD (AJD) Program

The Fall Start AJD program begins in August. Students attend classes during the fall, spring, and summer semesters in each of their two years and graduate in August of their second year. Fall Start AJD students are eligible to sit for the bar in February after graduation.

Students admitted into the Fall Start AJD program must meet a 3.0 GPA requirement at the end of the fall semester to continue in the AJD program. Students who do not meet the GPA requirement will continue with the traditional program.
