Travis Stills, an environmental lawyer in Colorado and a graduate of Vermont Law and Graduate School, has been awarded the Kerry Rydberg-Jack Tuholske Award for Excellence by the Public Interest Environmental Law Conference. The annual award recognizes a lawyer exemplifying the best in public interest environmental advocacy.

Stills, a 1996 VLGS graduate, practices energy and environmental law in Durango, Colorado, where he represents nonprofit organizations and other groups in challenges to polluting projects and extractive land management plans.

“This award is so richly deserved. Travis is a superb public interest lawyer and colleague,” said Christophe Courchesne, director of VLGS’s Environmental Advocacy Clinic. “We are excited to continue our partnership with him in the years to come.”
