Clinical Professor of Law

Professor Carter teaches Legal Method & Writing, Legal Advocacy, Appellate Advocacy, and other upper level writing courses.  His recent scholarship addresses how emerging theories of human cognition might impact the structure of legal arguments and their written presentation.

Prior to building his law practice, Professor Carter was a member of the writing faculty at the Seattle University School of Law and worked on antitrust and stockbroker fraud matters at the Seattle law firm of Foster Pepper.  He also served as a clerk to the Honorable J. Garvan Murtha at the United States District Court, District of Vermont. 

Professor Carter graduated magna cum laude from Vermont Law School in 1999, where he focused on environmental law.  He was a dean's and faculty fellow and member of the Vermont Law Review.  Prior to attending law school, he was a member of the United States Antarctic Program and built wilderness trails in Vermont and the Pacific Northwest.
