Career Pathways

The JD/MERL program prepares students for a variety of legal and policy positions in the energy field with private law firms and other businesses, the nonprofit sector, and government.

Graduates of the energy program at Vermont Law School work for government agencies, including the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, the U.S. Department of Energy, and state regulatory agencies. They also work at nonprofit organizations such as the New England States Committee on Electricity and the Regulatory Assistance Project.

VLS energy graduates work in the private sphere as well, in law firms focusing on energy, such as the Energy and Infrastructure Projects group of Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom, and as consultants with firms such as CH2M Hill.
