ABSTRACT
The author examines the criminal jurisprudence of the Vermont Supreme Court. He notes that a study by Jason J. Legg in 1997 found that the Court applies more stringent state constitutional protections against self-incrimination than those seen in federal courts. He mentions that the Vermont Legislature has created a limited statutory right to counsel for driving under the influence (DUI) suspects. He also claims that the direction and judicial philosophy of the Court remains constant.
