Vermont Law School Observer Delegations
Student delegates interact with practitioners (e.g., diplomats, lawyers, negotiators, members of the private sector, NGOs, scientists). The following examples demonstrate the dynamic, experiential nature of this service-based learning course and skills-based training for the students:
- Participation in a Climate Negotiation Training Workshop, mock negotiations, decoding treaty language, drafting treaty text, and live negotiations.
- Interdisciplinary research projects pertaining to operationalizing ocean commitments under the Paris Agreement (e.g., blue carbon research, climate financing, legal frameworks).
- Exposure to internships, externships, and post-graduate fellowships.
