The Douglas Meredith Legacy Society

Douglas Meredith (1905-93) was a businessman, professor, civic leader, and VLS board member. His leadership and philanthropic vision, including a generous bequest to Vermont Law School, helped make VLS the strong institution it is today. The Douglas Meredith Legacy Society was founded to acknowledge other individuals who have made a planned gift or included Vermont Law School in their estate plans.

Vermont Law School welcomes members to the Douglas Meredith Legacy Society who have:

  • Included VLS in their estate plan through a will or living trust;
  • Created a charitable remainder trust, which names VLS as the remainder beneficiary;
  • Named VLS as the beneficiary of a life insurance policy or retirement plan.
