Visual Law Project

The Yale Visual Law Project produces short documentary films on legal issues to advance public debate. Education. We run a year-long practicum at the Information Society Project at Yale Law School that trains law students in the art of visual advocacy — making effective arguments through film. Innovation. We explore the intersection between law and film through multidisciplinary workshops, discussions with renowned guest speakers, and hands-on production. Advocacy. We produce intellectually stimulating and well-researched films grounded in the stories of people who live out the consequences of the law. Community. We are part of a rising community of students, lawyers, and filmmakers invested in visual advocacy. Learn more about our grand experiment and sign up for news and updates. The Yale Visual Law Project is housed at the Yale Law School Information Society Project. For more information, please contact [email protected].
