    It's not ALL about the CLE credits!

    It’s CLE season, and half of us need to report to the judiciary our last two years’ credits by June 30.  So needless to say, there is a hustle and bustle here at the VBA in the spring.  But CLE’s are not about just checking boxes or hitting play on a DVD to hit the 20-hour mark.  There is so much more to a CLE offering, and the VBA prides itself on providing the whole package! Take, for example, last Friday, which was Family Law Day...CLE’s are also about having fun, networking, sharing stories, helping each other figure out complex cases, catching up, finding referrals, eating and being present in Vermont’s uniquely fabulous community of lawyers.

    RCBA Annual Law Day Mock Trial

    The Rutland County Bar Association continued its 30+ year annual tradition of a Law Day Mock Trial hosting over 200 area 5th graders from seven different schools on May 8, 2019. The Avengers-themed case of “Thanos v. Shuri of Wakanda” featured Thanos suing Shuri for damages suffered after she allegedly damaged Thanos’ infinity gauntlet. The annual Law Day Mock Trial in Rutland has been a great way to introduce thousands of students to our system of justice in an entertaining and educational way.

    Something for Everyone!

    Last week the VBA went back to the basics with our biannual Basic Skills program.  Being that it is CLE season, we had a varied selection of new and established attorneys at our program.  Why should a seasoned attorney attend Basic Skills, you ask?  Well, I asked a few and they replied that the program was fantastic and they were glad they attended! One attendee spoke of how the program fed their intellectual curiosity. Get the whole scoop, and pictures, of course, HERE!
