Most people become lawyers by attending an accredited law school and then passing the bar exam in the state of their choosing. The State of Vermont and (I believe) a handful of other states permit a college graduate to become a lawyer the old-fashioned way – through apprenticeship. In Vermont it is officially referred to as reading for the law. There are some variations, but generally it is a four year office study program, followed by the passing of the bar exam. If you are interested in reading for the law in Vermont send your letter of interest and resume by email or snail mail to Steven H. Atherton, P.O. Box 90, Northfield Falls, VT 05664.
