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.

Our Viewbook is an excellent overview of the J.D. program and the admissions process, and the Yale Law School Bulletin has course listings and detailed program information.

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.”
