for more diversity
SOUTH ROYALTON — Vermont Law School has entered into partnerships with several historically black colleges and universities to expand racial and ethnic diversity in the legal profession.
The law school has partnered with Central State University in Wilberforce, Ohio, and Morehouse College and Spelman College in Atlanta.
Each partnership is tailored to the interests of the college or university. The agreement with Central State University, for example, is designed to attract prospective students to the J.D./Master of Environmental Law and Policy and the J.D./Master of Energy Regulation and Law programs at Vermont Law.
The partnerships with Morehouse College and Spelman College are designed to facilitate admission of qualified students to law school in general and Vermont Law in particular.
