Vermont Law School
Vermont Law School (VLS) operates from the belief that lawyers and legal scholars should advocate for the common good and help protect the natural world, and that legal education in service to those objectives should be both rigorous and practical. The school's legal scholars, practitioners, and staff guide and prepare students to impact fields affecting the public interest, public policy, and social justice. Graduates work for nonprofit organizations, private firms, government agencies, and educational institutions. As an international leader in environmental law, VLS is active in broadening the array of social justice, energy policy, and climate crisis issues to be addressed by legal scholarship and in legal education. The school features distinctive programs in international law and dual JD/master's degree programs in business administration, environmental management, environmental policy, philosophy, and other fields.
