The Courtyard

The Courtyard, Yale Law School’s online community, launched in September 2019. Named for a favorite gathering place, the tool aims to replicate online the personal connections made in the heart of the Law School.

Through The Courtyard, alumni can easily connect with other alumni, find mentors, and engage with student organizations. It includes an online directory, ways to find alumni geographically, and mentoring tools.

The Courtyard will also allow alumni to “pay it forward” by becoming a mentor to current students, just as many of our graduates received support and guidance from other members of the YLS community and alumni network.

Alumni participation will allow The Courtyard to maximize the power of the community as a key resource. Please join the YLS alumni community in The Courtyard. For more information, please go to or contact Tina Severson at 203 432-1692.
