The starting salary is $57,500+, with additional salary credit granted for relevant prior work experience. Four weeks of paid vacation and retirement, plus excellent health benefits. Lawyer applicants must be licensed to practice law in Vermont or be eligible for waiver admission. In-state travel in personal vehicle required.
