Located in New Haven, Connecticut, just 1.5 hours from New York City and 3 hours from Boston, Yale Law School welcomes visitors to our campus, 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.

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.

Yale Law School is distinguished among American law schools by two things: its small size — that’s a physical fact about the law school — and also the spirit of comradeship and cooperation that exists among all of the members of the community.”
