A young and vibrant school that has already established itself as a leader, Vermont Law School is dedicated to providing students, faculty, and staff with an exceptional educational community that values individualism, ethics, personal engagement, and public citizenship.
The mission we uphold is strengthened by our diversity, our dynamic curriculum and experiential learning opportunities, our prestigious faculty and excellent staff, and the supportive atmosphere we have created and nurtured.
Our goal is to educate agents of change who will continue to be guided by our motto—“Law for the community and the world”—as they set off down their individual paths toward success as litigators, public interest attorneys, environmental and land use experts, civil rights advocates, and activists. Near and far, our graduates add meaning to their careers by serving as leaders in their communities and stewards of the earth. One and all, we are committed to having a significant positive impact on the world that surrounds us and the people who are living in it.
"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."
