Vermont Law School is the only law school to prohibit military recruiters on campus due to the discrimination that exists under the Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell policy (DADT). Today, the military announced that it is set "to certify that the U.S. military is prepared to accept openly gay and lesbian service members, and doing so will not harm military readiness." This certification is required for the repeal of DADT to take effect. The repeal will happen in 60 days, and, thus, our Dean announced today that "in response to the certification by Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta of the steps necessary to effect repeal of the Don’t Ask Don’t Tell law I have informed the pentagon that this fall we will welcome military recruiters to campus."
