Vermont changes rules for licensing of out-of-state attorneys

The Vermont Supreme Court has changed the rules for out-of-state attorneys to be licensed in Vermont. They have dropped the three-month clerkship requirement for attorneys with five or more years of practice in another jurisdiction. In its place, Vermont now mandates 15 hours of CLE, all of which must be taken prior to admission, with programs approved by the Board of Bar Examiners. For information on programs approved to assist in this transition, click here.
