Why come to Vermont to work in public sector law and advocacy?
Yes, it IS possible to achieve a positive and healthy work/life balance working in Vermont’s public sector. Come work with Vermont’s State Attorney’s Offices.
With offices throughout Vermont, you can enjoy Vermont’s 4-seasons of outstanding recreational opportunities; the beauty of Vermont’s natural environment; our famous farm-to-plate cuisine; a lively arts and music scene; our best-in-the-East skiing and snowboarding; miles of scenic hiking biking and rail trails; and sailing on Lake Champlain while gazing across the water towards the 6 million acre-Adirondack Park.
As a predominantly rural state, we still value our high-level of community engagement and volunteerism. Our smallness equates to access in many forms: in community relationships, to our representative government, and in Vermont’s Town Meeting system of direct citizen involvement in very local decision-making.
In our tradition of neighbor-helping-neighbor, Vermonters rolled up their sleeves in a unified response to the COVID pandemic, achieving the highest vaccination rate in the country. Vermont State government - and our Department -- pivoted to teleworking options for staff, much of which remains today.
