Located in New Haven, Connecticut, just 1.5 hours from New York City and 3 hours from Boston, Yale Law School welcomes visitors, especially prospective students. You will find the Law School in the Sterling Law Building on the 410-acre Yale campus, with its impressive neo-gothic architecture, extensive athletic and recreational facilities, and 26 libraries.

When you arrive on campus, please register in the Admissions Office, located in Suite 175 in Ruttenberg Hall.  The office is open on weekdays from 9:00am-4:30pm. Please note that the Law School is closed in observance of Thanksgiving and the winter holidays. The Law School remains open during Fall Break, Fall Examination Period, and Spring Recess.

Downtown New Haven is also a short walkable block away, and offers restaurants, shops, bookstores, and a lively night life. To learn more about the city, visit Living in New Haven.

This place has always been imbued with a restless spirit, the assumption that being the finest law school in the world is never enough, and a deep belief that you, our students, can do anything.”
