Welcome Back!

Yale Law School’s commitment to your success does not end the day you graduate. YLS alums are an essential part of the makeup of our community. After graduation, all alumni automatically become members of the Yale Law School Association (YLSA) for life. As an alum you are invited to attend a wide range of alumni engagement events and have access to our diverse alumni community through The Courtyard. Whether you are looking to engage in new ways or reconnect with old friends, Yale Law School Alumni Engagement and the YLSA are here to support you.

Save the Date! Alumni Weekend 2023 will be October 20-22, 2023.
