Explore New Haven’s distinct neighborhoods


Yale Law School is located in the heart of New Haven, a vibrant city of approximately 130,000 people. Detailed information about the city's many neighborhoods, including areas popular among the University's graduate and professional students, can be found on the webpage Living in New Haven.

The clinics at YLS offer students incomparable experiences in representation of poor and marginalized individuals and communities, real-world engagement in complex fields of law, and the development of strategic judgment critical to effective lawyering.”
