Summer Media Fellowships Accepting Applications

January 22, 2010

Vermont Law School Summer Media Fellowships
CONTACT: John Cramer, Associate Director of Media Relations

SOUTH ROYALTON, VT -- Vermont Law School's Summer Media Fellowships program is accepting applications for its 2010 session. The application deadline is March 1.

Every summer, Vermont Law School brings together renowned faculty, environmental policymakers, superior students and top journalists to share their knowledge and expertise while enjoying all of the beauty that our campus and its environs offer.

If selected as one of our summer media follows, you can audit courses, take a private tutorial in legal research, and have access to our distinguished faculty and visiting policy leaders. You will join us for one of our two-week sessions from mid-June to late August. We will provide free housing and a $1,250 stipend for expenses. Family members are welcome to join you.

The Environmental Law Center at VLS has led the nation in environmental law and policy education since its founding in 1978. Our summer media fellows learn from experienced litigators who have fought and won crucial environmental cases and from experts in energy law and other cutting-edge legal disciplines. Journalists will develop new insights on environmental law and new skills aimed at analyzing environmental policy. Moreover, the session is sure to renew your enthusiasm for covering these critical and complex issues.

And after a thrilling day of seminars, conversation and professional growth, you can enjoy the wonders of Vermont. Swim in the White River, hike our mountains or just read and relax on your front porch.

The 2010 Summer Session features courses such as Climate Change Litigation, Sustainable Development, Renewable Energy and Alternative Fuels, Agriculture Law and Environmental Law in China. For a full listing of our 2010 summer courses, faculty and schedule, visit our Summer Session pages. Media fellows also take part in the summer session's brown bag lunch series, "Hot Topics in Environmental Law," delivering an hour-long lecture on a topic of their choosing.

Applicants are asked to submit a résumé, two samples of your work that demonstrate your commitment to environmental reporting and an essay of no more than 800 words describing your interest in the program.
