Are you an undergraduate student committed to developing new ways of thinking about crime and justice or environmental law and policy? Vermont Law School’s New Frontiers program is designed to provide undergraduate students the chance to take graduate-level courses over the summer. In addition to course work, students will have opportunities to connect with VLS Faculty and Staff to learn the basics of our Law & Graduate School. Students will work with a mentor to assist you through your course and provide a fun summer experience while you stay in Vermont. Courses run for two weeks. Students are not responsible for housing.
"New Frontiers is a unique, one-of-a-kind experience that solidified my passion for environmental law and policy. The summer program allowed me to establish close relationships with professors, learn from current law students, and focus on establishing a career in this field. Not to mention, a summer spent in scenic Vermont with fellow students in the program created unforgettable experiences, including tubing, hiking, and sightseeing. Enthusiastically, I returned to South Royalton for a master’s because of the New Frontiers program. I felt beyond prepared thanks to the summer program and hit the ground running once classes started. While VLS has a charming campus in a beautiful setting, what makes the law school standout is the people, especially the faculty. They’re always approachable and willing to help with classes and career aspirations. My experience at VLS provided me the foundational knowledge to contribute positively to our world. I’ve been fortunate enough to work on environmental issues in Cambodia, Kosovo, and now here in the United States with the Environmental Protection Agency. VLS opened so many doors for me and gave me wonderful work experiences as well as personal ones."
