Vermont Law School Online (ABA accredited) in South Royalton, VT, has opened two new distance degree programs: Online Master of Environmental Law and Policy (MELP) and an LLM Online Masters in Environmental Law.

The Online MELP is designed to give both law and non-law students a rich understanding of the policies and legal thinking that is shaping global environmental policy and remedies.

The Online LLM in Environmental Law is open to enrollments from post-JD candidates who want to specialize in the active practice of environmental law. LLM applicants must hold a JD from an ABA-approved law school or foreign equivalent. GRE, LSAT, and GMAT test scores are optional.

As one of the top ranking environmental law schools in the country, Vermont Law has been an innovator in higher education since its founding as an institution specializing in the study of law for the common good of society in 1973.

The ABA accredited residential law school offers the world's largest selection of environmental law courses, with more than 50 courses choices for aspiring lawyers or corporate managers who want to go green.

Two cheers for our newest online masters degrees from a Vermont school! This also marks a big step forward with ABA law schools as previously the ABA has allowed only selected law courses to be offered online but not entire degree programs.
