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 currently not allowed to have visits to campus.

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.

Today is a wonderful time to be blessed with legal training and to be able to go out and take on the enormous challenges of a difficult world — with an aspiration to lead tempered by humility at the complexity, difficulty, discipline, and self-sacrifice inherent in the task.”
