Our commitment to equal access means that we open our doors to those students who have the most to gain from this School and the most to give to the world, regardless of their means. Yale Law School has long been a leader in providing need-based financial aid, ensuring that our remarkable students have the chance to attend Yale no matter their financial circumstances. We want to provide the freedom for our students to pursue any career path they choose through additional scholarship and resources. 

Your support will provide life-changing resources directly to our students, equipping them to go out and change the world. Make a gift to support our students today.

I attended Yale Law School with maximum financial aid. Now, as the first COAP beneficiary in history to join the YLS faculty, I have the opportunity to help current students learn about law and lawyering.”
