Kendra Brown was recently selected as the Policy Director of the Congressional Black Caucus in Washington, DC. She will lead the policy development, strategic planning and initiatives of the Caucus. The Caucus was created in 1971 to serve as a voice for people of color and vulnerable communities in Congress to ensure that everyone in the United States has an opportunity to achieve their version of the American Dream.
Class Notes David G. Carpenter 8/11/2015  
FINALLY after working for The Man and whining about it for 16 years, on September 1, 2013, Dave Carpenter ('97) will open The Carpenter Law Firm, PLLC! My main office will be in Middlebury, with a satellite in Orwell and meeting/conference space in Rutland.

Dave will now stop speaking about himself awkwardly in the third person.

I'll be handling a variety of general matters (civil litigation, family law) matters with my existing smaller business clients and individuals, but also will continue to represent large companies like Casella Waste Systems, Inc. I intend to increase the number of environmental and land use clients as well in VT, NY and MA, where I am licensed. I am also working on strategic partnerships with other attorneys (a number of them VLS grads) to provide cost-effective "general counsel" services to businesses that need the expertise but not the overhead.
