An ELI Public Webinar

Join us for a coffee chat with ELI Distinguished Scholar, Judge Merideth Wright. In honor of Women’s History Month, this coffee chat will explore Judge Wright’s illustrious career.

Judge Wright retired in 2011 as one of the two environmental judges for the State of Vermont. She had presided over the Vermont Environmental Court (now known as the Environmental Division of the Vermont Superior Court) since its creation in 1990. Before her appointment to the bench, Judge Wright worked on environmental enforcement cases and providing program advice to the state's environmental agency in the environmental section of the Vermont Attorney General’s Office, and as a staff attorney for the Vermont Supreme Court. Before moving to Vermont in 1978, she worked for the U.S. EPA, for a small Washington, D.C. public interest law firm, and for a prosecutor’s office. Judge Wright earned her J.D. degree in 1974 from the University of Chicago and her B.A. degree in 1971, magna cum laude, from Yale University, in an independent Environmental Studies major.
