U.S.-China Partnership for Environmental Law

VLS Student Opportunities

The U.S.-China Partnership for Environmental Law has created a variety of opportunities for Vermont Law School students who are interested in Chinese and International Environmental Law.  From the U.S.-China Student Collaborative Research Fellowship to an exchange semester at China's top law school, from a weekly Mandarin language table on campus to summer internships in China and Asia, students are exposed to many opportunities to deepen their knowledge of China's environmental governance challenges, improve their Chinese language skills, and build useful connections for their future career in international environmental law.
