Vermont Law School | Diversity Employer


We are committed to developing a generation of leaders who use the power of the law to make a difference in our communities and the world. Which means we aim for more than simply teaching about how to make a difference. We also strive to live it every day on campus and in our community.

It's in small things: like compostable toilets, a solar-powered electric-car charger, and a cafeteria where most of the food is local and organic.

It's also in the big things. Nearly every building on campus has been repurposed from its original use as a New England school or home into a building that serves a 21st century school, and many of them are award-winning historic preservation efforts that are also models of energy efficiency.

It's also in our principles. Vermont Law was one of only two law schools nationwide to not only actively protest "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy on gays serving in the military, and to lose $300,000-$500,000 per year in federal funds between 1999 and 2011 for doing so.

It's also in how we think about community. When we opened our poverty law clinic in 1979, we named it after the town in which we live and work: The South Royalton Legal Clinic. And when Tropical Storm Irene ravaged most of Vermont, including neighbors and farmers in South Royalton, we cancelled classes and organized a volunteer effort that last for months, not just days.

Join us.

"To educate students in a diverse community that fosters personal growth and that enables them to attain outstanding professional skills and high ethical values with which to serve as lawyers and environmental and other professionals in an increasingly technological and interdependent global society."

Law for the community and the world

Law schools control access to the legal profession. In this role, Vermont Law and Graduate School (VLGS) has had an obligation to ensure that individuals who have been traditionally under-represented and have not had the opportunity to enter the profession are able to do so. The broader American society, and indeed the world, is culturally, racially, and ethnically diverse. We live in a global society where technology has largely eliminated geographic and cultural barriers to communication and commerce. To live up to the expectations of its motto, Lex Pro Urbe Et Orbe—Law for the Community and the World—Vermont Law and Graduate School must equip its students with the skills, knowledge, and understanding to reside as citizens and leaders in this increasingly diverse and dynamic world

Vermont Law and Graduate School, a private, independent institution, is home to a law school that offers ABA-accredited residential and online hybrid JD programs and a graduate school that offers master’s degrees and certificates in multiple disciplines, including programs offered by the Maverick Lloyd School for the Environment, the Center for Justice Reform and other graduate-level programs emphasizing the intersection of environmental justice, social justice and public policy. Both the law and graduate schools strongly feature experiential clinical and field work learning. For more information, visit vermontlaw.eduFacebookTwitter, and Instagram.
