Outside the Law School
The Law School’s commitment to interdisciplinary studies, and to allowing students to craft their own education, means that law students at Yale have unusual freedom to select their courses and to cross-register for classes outside the Law School. Students may choose among dozens of courses in the School of Public Health, the School of Management, and Yale College on topics such as health policy, health care economics, hospital management, and epidemiology.
