Vermont Law School – Chelsea Street Ribbon Cutting
by TruexCullins, May 4, 2012
The Vermont Law School has just announced that U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders, Gov. Peter Shumlin, Vermont Supreme Court Chief Justice Paul Reiber and other officials will attend the ribbon cutting of VLS’s new Center for Legal Services at 11:30 a.m., Friday, May 18.
The historic building at 190 Chelsea St. underwent a $3.5 million renovation to convert it into the new home for the South Royalton Legal Clinic and the Environmental and Natural Resources Law Clinic. The two clinics provide millions of dollars of free legal services to needy families, community groups and others in the name of environmental stewardship, social justice and public interest.
The ribbon cutting and a tour of the building are free and open to the public.
You can find a brief description of our work on this project on our website. You can also read about the new center for legal services and the story of the Legal Clinic in an article posted on the VLS website.
