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.

We want you to think of Yale not just as the place you received your legal education, but as one of the places where you found your moral compass.”
