Dispute Resolution Summer Session


Are you looking to develop new skills, add credits, or perhaps start a new career? Come and spend your summer in Vermont learning dispute resolution from the leaders in the field. Take Mediation Advocacy with Cathy Costantino, Negotiation with Randy Lowry, Environmental Dispute Resolution with Phil Harter, International Investment Arbitration and the Environment with Marcos Orellana, and the Advanced Dispute Resolution Writing Seminar with Beth McCormack. With five terms from May to July, there is something for everyone.

The Environmental Law Center's Summer Session courses can be taken for graduate credit (at Vermont Law School or other graduate institutions), audited for professional development, or audited for CLE credit.
