There are many great ways to connect with the YLS Admissions Office! Fill out our Inquiry Form and join our mailing list, so we can keep in touch with you about the Law School and our admissions process. You can also browse our JD Viewbook and request a need-based fee waiver.

To learn more about YLS and the admissions process, sign up to attend an upcoming recruiting event—including small 'office hour' sessions with the admissions deans—or schedule a phone appointment to speak with an admissions representative. We invite you to learn more about the student experience at YLS by visiting our Student Reps and Coordinators Blog or by asking a question of our current students. And of course, you can listen to Dean Ingber’s podcast, Navigating Law School Admissions with Miriam & Kristi, which is an excellent resource for prospective law school applicants.

The Admissions Office is located at Suite 175 in Ruttenberg Hall. The office is open on weekdays from 9:00am-4:30pm.

I chose to attend Yale Law School because I wanted to direct my own education. Twenty-five years later, freedom and flexibility are still the best things about this place. As a YLS student, you get to decide what you want to study. ”
