Yale Law School is committed to world-class scholarship, professional excellence, and service for the greater good. From the first class meeting to the final gathering at Commencement, you’ll learn from faculty of unmatched talent and qualifications alongside an extraordinary group of classmates. In addition to a rich history and an accomplished student body, our small size and relatively large faculty allow us to foster relationships that last long after graduation. The alumni community’s deep commitment to the School facilitates lifelong friendships and networks.

Due to ongoing concerns about the COVID-19 outbreak, we are not permitted to have any visits to campus through April 5 at the earliest. Given the rapidly-changing circumstances, these restrictions could be extended past April 5.

If you visit the Law School, please check in with the Admissions Office, located in Suite 175 in Ruttenberg Hall. The office is open on weekdays from 9:00am-4:30pm. 

I’m really passionate about three things. I want to have less violence, fewer prisoners, and better schools.”
