The Vermont Law School is cutting tenured positions as it continues to deal with longstanding financial pressures.

VTDigger reports that more than a dozen faculty will lose tenure this year at the South Royalton school, according to two senior faculty members. The cuts mean that while many of those senior faculty members will remain, they will no longer have employment protections. VLS President Thomas McHenry told the website they are "restructuring the faculty," but would not provide specifics.

The Vermont Law School is the only law school in the state and is known for its environmental law program. But the school and many other law schools have faced enrollment challenges in the past decade.
