The physics of vector boson scattering at hadron collliders like the LHC
will be reviewed, including QCD NLO corrections to VVjj cross sections, which affect tagging
jets. Deviations from SM expectations are desrcibed by effective Lagrangians. As dimension-8 operators or higher are employed, unitarization of the  underlying vector boson scattering process becomes important phenomenologically and has recently been implemented within the VBFNLO
Monte Carlo program.
