The purpose of Vermont Supreme Court Emergency Order Promulgating Administrative Order No. 54 is to increase access to legal services to flood victims by relaxing the court rules that apply to the attorney licensing process in certain circumstances. In particular, the emergency order eases the process to obtain an active law license for two groups: (1) Vermont lawyers with inactive law licenses and (2) out-of-state lawyers. A “Limited Emergency Pro Bono Law License” authorizes a licensee to provide pro bono legal services solely for matters related to the Flood Emergency until such time that the Court directs.
