SOUTH ROYALTON, Vt. (AP) - The law of outdoor recreation, such as taking a dip in a swimming hole or competing in an obstacle course, is the topic of a panel discussion at Vermont Law School this week.

The event, “Old Swimming Holes and Tough Mudders: The Law of Outdoor Recreation” takes place Thursday at 12:45 p.m. in the Chase Community Center. It’s free and open to the public.

The school’s Sports Law Institute is presenting the panel discussion, which will be moderated by VLS professor Brian Porto. He says, “Legal issues abound in outdoor recreation- risk and liability, negligence, waivers and releases, insurance, contracts, and more.”
