Our Promise

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. Because the status quo is no longer acceptable.

Vermont Law School students are world-class thinkers and doers. They participate in clinics and externships that give them experience representing underserved clients, conducting leading-edge research, and working with community groups. They take part in national trial advocacy, environmental and civil rights moot court competitions, and in arguments before the Vermont Supreme Court. They are scientists, hackers, hikers, and musicians. They are talented, sometimes quirky, entrepreneurial self-starters and self-selectors who believe in community. They are idealists interested in practical training. They are friends, activists, and leaders in the law.
