New & Current Student Admissions


Using a combination of loans and grants/scholarships, we make every effort to provide students with the difference between their resources (such as family resources, summer earnings, and student savings) and the cost of attending Yale Law School.

Financial Aid Support


Currently, 70% of our student body is receiving some form of financial aid in the 2017-2018 academic year. More than half (59%) of our students qualified for Law School institutional scholarships, averaging $25,998 per student. In total, Yale Law School disburses over $9.5 million annually in institutional support to its J.D. candidates

Your legal education confers on you the privilege of speaking the language of power. And that is no small thing. I know you will use your power wisely and for principled ends.”
