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.

There are many law schools. Ours is special. It’s a close-knit community of faculty, students, and staff committed to excellence in everything we do.”
