I wanted to make sure to post this announcement with a reminder that if you have not yet registered for your Summer, Fall, and even next Spring semester courses, you are able to do that on Campus Web now: if you want to schedule a time to connect and discuss your degree plan, don't hesitate to contact me. You can even use my appointment scheduling tool to have me call you at a specific time: https://calendly.com/gnichols-2/student-advising-meeting
The announcement that follows will link you to the entire course options for the Summer Semester, and if the course you wish to take falls within the Handbook guidelines, you can take it! BUT any course that is "Virtual" will need to be cross-registered if you are an online student. And as usual for all of our residential students in online classes with us currently, any online class will also have to be cross-registered. Keep in mind that you only need to submit the cross-registration form for courses outside of your original modality.: https://secure.vermontlaw.edu/students/crossreg.cfm
I am writing with an opportunity for those of you looking for coursework in either the asynchronous or the “live vritual” synchronous format this summer.
As we are all aware, these past few months have brought unprecedented changes to the way we deliver courses and educate our students. Like law schools across the country, Vermont Law School (VLS) moved all spring semester classes to a virtual format that we call "Virtual VLS." We will continue to operate virtually throughout the summer, drawing on a long history of delivering online education—as well as the expertise of our faculty and staff—to make a seamless transition.
With our renowned Summer Session now completely online, we will offer over 50 courses in environmental law and policy, restorative justice, and general JD curriculum. In addition to the asynchronous “online” format you are already accustomed to, our “live virtual” courses are also open to online students, and the “live virtual” Summer Session could be an excellent opportunity to experience a different modality for your studies while enrolled at Vermont Law School.
A flexible format allows students to choose classes that best fit their needs. As this pandemic has impacted us all differently, there are options to choose from classes in a "live virtual" format or in an "online" format where students complete the coursework at their own pace while meeting course requirements.
Best regards and take care,
