Due to ongoing concerns about the COVID-19 outbreak, we are currently not allowed to have visits to campus.

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.

Now it is time to pivot and ask, where are your extraordinary gifts needed? How do you make this legal world that you are entering a better world? One where no one is shut out; one where the weak and vulnerable are not exploited; one that produces fair results based on the merits of the issues before it.”
