Living the Vermont life

Put this story in the “this isn’t the typical law student experience” box. My husband and I bought a house here in Vermont once I made the decision to attend law school here. We figured we’d get in on the big tax credit for first time home buyers, and since the real estate market was […]

An Arctic Blast..
