Degrees at Vermont Law and Graduate School
A degree from Vermont Law and Graduate School is a degree like no other. Nationally known for its environmental, social, and restorative justice programs, students come to VLGS not to fit into the status quo, but to change it. They learn what it means to fight—often against powerful interests and powerful odds—on the sides of justice and truth.
In the classroom, you’ll learn environmental law concepts and energy policy in buildings recognized for both historic preservation and environmental responsibility. You’ll hike on conserved land and kayak in protected water. You’ll debate human rights in a place that’s devoted to diversity and equality. You’ll participate in sustainable agriculture by consuming locally grown produce and meeting organic entrepreneurs.
VLGS alumni seek to make changes in a variety of organizations: government agencies, nonprofits, businesses, and NGOs. Our graduates are change agents who go into public and nonprofit careers at nearly twice the national law school average. A VLGS degree is the start of a constructive career and a meaningful life.
