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, 73% of our student body is receiving some form of financial aid in the 2016-2017 academic year. More than half (60%) of our students qualified for Law School institutional scholarships, averaging $25,516 per student. In total, Yale Law School disburses over $9 million annually in institutional support to its J.D. candidates

The breadth and depth of public interest opportunities at Yale Law School are incredible, and the unique curriculum allows us to dive in as first-year students.”
