Financial Aid Support

Yale Law School's financial aid policies and programs are designed to make it possible for students to pursue their legal education at Yale regardless of their financial circumstances.

Using a combination of loans and scholarship grants, 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. 71% of our J.D. student body received some form of financial aid in the 2023-2024 academic year, and 62% qualified for Law School scholarship grants, which are awarded solely on the basis of financial need.

For more details on JD financial aid policies and procedures, please refer to the 2023-2024 JD Financial Aid Handbook or 2024-2025 JD Financial Aid Handbook.
