Located in New Haven, Connecticut, Yale Law School offers a vibrant environment of excellence and educational intimacy in the form of world renowned faculty, small classes, limitless opportunities for clinical training, and strong encouragement of public service. The Law School is small by design; its impact on the world is measured by its accomplished graduates and its ongoing scholarship and outreach through numerous centers and projects.
For students, the experience is unparalleled. The faculty-student ratio supports a vast array of courses and opportunities for independent research and student-organized seminars. Students get practical training by representing real clients in clinics starting in their first year.
Yale Law School is unique among law schools in that it produces leaders across every sector of society: distinguished deans and faculty members at law schools across the country and the world; industry CEOs and corporate counsels; founders of nongovernmental organizations and other nonprofit entities; entrepreneurs; government servants in federal, state, and local offices and the judiciary — just a few areas in which our alumni's talent, passion, and dedication have made a difference.
With a vast array of courses, a robust clinical program, and meaningful experiences outside the classroom, Yale Law graduates are empowered to chart their own course and equipped with a supercharged ability to tackle the most pressing problems of our time.
