Assistant/Associate Professor

Environmental Justice Clinic


Vermont Law and Graduate School (VLGS), a national leader in environmental law and restorative justice, invites applications for an Assistant/Associate Professor in the VLGS Environmental Justice Clinic—an open-rank clinical faculty position with expertise in environmental justice law and policy. The precise start date is flexible, but the successful applicant must start no later than Fall 2023. Entry-level, junior, and senior lateral candidates will be considered. Candidates should demonstrate evidence of or potential for outstanding, innovative, and engaged clinical teaching.

The Environmental Justice (EJ) Clinic at VLGS is one of only a few law school clinics in the United States devoted to environmental justice, an interdisciplinary practice at the intersection of civil rights and the environment. Students represent clients from low-income communities and communities of color before administrative agencies, in filing Title VI complaints, and in court to address racial and economic disparities. The EJ Clinic is open to upper-level JD, LLM, and Master’s students.

In addition to teaching, faculty provide service to VLGS and engage with other professionals and the public to contribute to the intellectual exchange of ideas with an eye towards social justice. The clinic is taught residentially in South Royalton, Vermont, a small town on the bank of the beautiful White River. Less than thirty minutes away lie the amenities of Hanover, NH (home to Dartmouth College) and Lebanon, NH. Burlington, VT, Boston, MA, and Montreal, QC are all within a three-hour drive.
