New Haven — A Lively, Small Urban Center


The City of New Haven, a lively, small urban center between New York City and Boston, offers many diversions. Strolling the streets immediately around the Law School, you'll pass shops and restaurants to suit any taste or budget. Cultural attractions and outdoor recreation are plentiful for such a small New England city.

At heart, Yale Law School is about a distinctive culture of intellectual curiosity about the law. We think good ideas matter. Our faculty and, most of all, our students live this idea every day.”
