Because of your generosity, Yale Law School is more equipped than ever to prepare the next generation of leaders in the legal profession. You provide YLS with the financial resources to fulfill our promise to deliver the finest legal education, to push the boundaries of legal scholarship, and to pursue justice for the voiceless.

The YLS community is incredibly grateful for your support.

“Because of the support I received from the Career Options Assistance Program, a group of YLS students and I were able to start the world’s first nonprofit organization providing legal aid to persecuted refugees seeking resettlement in safe countries.”

Yale Law & Business Society, President
Black Law Students Association, Professional Development Chair


"The great thing about Yale is there are an unlimited amount of extracurricular groups that you can get involved in. No matter what your interests are, there’s a group for you—and if it doesn’t exist, you have the resources to establish it on your own. Getting involved is a central concept of the school’s inclusive community."

Michael Wishnie ’93
William O. Douglas Clinical Professor of Law


“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 through the representation of undocumented immigrants, low-wage workers, disabled veterans, alleged terrorists, and other clients of the Law School’s path-breaking clinical programs.”

Yale Law Journal, Projects Editor 


“I have been able to leverage my diverse skill-set to publish a paper on class-based affirmative action, spent a summer with the Department of Justice Civil Appellate Staff, and served as an analytics intern on Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign. I hope to combine my knowledge of data science, law, and technology to adapt government policy to a world where big data and algorithms are increasingly relevant.”

Roberta Romano ’80
Sterling Professor of Law
Director of Yale Law School Center for the Study of Corporate Law


“YLS has made major innovations in business law education through the creation of the YLS Center for the Study of Corporate Law, which was the first of its kind. The Center has been the vehicle to make possible numerous curricular enrichment programs, including the three-year JD-MBA and the joint JD-PhD in finance program, as well as to provide an educational forum in which students, alumni, and faculty can interact to discuss the issues of the day. All of this has only been made possible by the generosity of our donors, for which we are deeply grateful.”

Jack Balkin
Knight Professor of Constitutional Law and the First Amendment
Founder and Director of The Information Society Project at Yale Law School


“Because of your generosity, the Information Society Project is supporting the next generation of law and technology scholars, and the Abrams institute is producing the next generation of media lawyers who will defend the rights of a free press in a democratic society.”

Abbe Gluck ’00

"The new The Solomon Center for Health Law and Policy at Yale Law School will make the Law School the go-to place for health law in the nation. Thanks to your generosity, we will train the next generation of health lawyers, industry and government leaders and academics, and utilize all Yale Law School has to offer to make real-world contributions to the future of health law, health governance and the practice of medicine."

Asha Rangappa ’00
Associate Dean, Admissions and Financial Aid


“We believe that administering our financial aid based on need alone is critical to ensuring that all students who are admitted to YLS will have the ability to enroll regardless of any financial limitations they may have.  Need-based aid allows us to direct our institutional resources to the students who truly require and will benefit most from them.”
