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.

One of the things that makes this job magic is the students. They’re unbelievably smart, the best lawyers you can imagine. But they care so deeply. And what always amazes me is they’re unfailingly modest about what they do.”
