The John M. Olin Center for Law, Economics and Public Policy, directed by George Priest and Susan Rose-Ackerman, facilitates the scholarly work of the Yale law and economics faculty and supports student interest and research in the field.

The Law, Economics & Organization Workshop is a forum for ongoing scholarly research in law and economics and a Law School course.

Yale Law School Center for Private Law promotes teaching and research in contracts (including commercial law, corporate finance, bankruptcy, and arbitration), property (including intellectual property), and torts at Yale Law School and in the broader legal community.

Yale Law School is distinguished among American law schools by two things: its small size — that’s a physical fact about the law school — and also the spirit of comradeship and cooperation that exists among all of the members of the community.”
