LEGAL EDUCATION UPDATE: Vermont Law School to Offer Buy-Outs to Faculty Next Month Due to Declining Enrollment. “The downsizing comes as a result of fewer applications over the past three years, VLS officials said, a problem that exists for law schools nationwide as potential students, dissuaded by a lack of open law jobs, don’t bother to apply. Westberg said that about 200 students are set to graduate with juris doctor degrees this spring. She said the school is predicting between 150 and 170 students to enroll this coming fall.”
