Apply to Yale Law School
Join Our Community
While the small size of Yale Law School—approximately 200 in each entering class—requires a selective admission process, we are committed to a holistic review of every application we receive. Overall, the Law School seeks the most promising students in terms of professional and academic distinction. We seek to admit students who can both perform very well academically, and also contribute meaningfully to the Law School community.
Listen to Navigating Law School Admissions with Miriam & Kristi
Admissions Dean Miriam Ingber has joined forces with Admissions Dean Kristi Jobson of Harvard Law School to ensure that applicants have candid, accurate, and straightforward advice about law school admissions — direct from the source. They will be joined by guest stars from other law schools to discuss application timing, letters of recommendation, personal statements, and more! Episodes of Navigating Law School Admissions with Miriam & Kristi will be released beginning in mid-August and every two weeks through November. Subscribe wherever you listen to your favorite podcasts, including Apple Podcasts, Android, Google Podcasts, Soundcloud, Spotify, and Stitcher!
“ I am proud to say that Yale manages to open doors that are unexpected for many foreign law students.”
