Vermont Law School will again offer  Legal Essentials for Energy Professionals, now in its fourth year, developed in partnership with the Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI). Through this professional development course forward-thinking executives will gain the skills necessary to understand and operate effectively within the electric power industry's legal and regulatory framework. Our Legal Essentials for Energy Professionals is a leading provider of the law and policy information needed by executives now and in the future.

In particular, this rigorous course will provide energy professionals with a broad overview of the legal foundation of the utility regulatory framework, the role of federal and state energy regulatory commissions, and how to operate effectively within these structures. Classes include topics such as "Working Effectively with Regulatory Agencies," "Transmission and Distribution Obligations," and "Dealing with Lawyers: Yours and Others.'" A wide and diverse range of industry experts, including utility COOs and highly experienced counsel for both utilities and federal agencies, have helped us develop the curriculum and will teach throughout the course.
