Vermont Law School Ranked #1 in Environmental Law for Fifth Consecutive Year

The U.S. News & World Report has released its rankings for the Best Graduate Schools for 2014, and has ranked Vermont Law School as the #1 environmental law school in the nation for an unprecedented fifth consecutive year. Vermont Law School has been ranked #1 or #2 in the U.S. News rankings for environmental law every year since 1991, and it has been ranked number one for 16 of those 23 years.

“This ranking reaffirms that VLS is a school with national impact on one of the most important issues of our time,” said President and Dean Marc Mihaly. “I am extremely proud of the entire VLS community for their hard work and commitment to our environmental curriculum, clinics, and institutes.”

“VLS offers the largest and most environmental diverse curriculum in the nation,” said acting director of the Environmental Law Center, Professor John Echeverria. “Whether it’s agriculture, energy, water, land use, climate change, China, and now Myanmar, VLS is deeply engaged in teaching, research, and advocacy in each of these areas. We are grateful for the continued recognition from U.S. News, and look forward to continuing to make a difference in the lives of our students, community, and the world,” he said.

US News also cited VLS in its advice to students regarding “4 Factors” to weigh along with the best law school rankings.
