A Vibrant Community


Yale Law School students are at the center of a vibrant community. Whether attending classes, organizing a slate of engaging conferences and events, or volunteering to work for the public interest, our students bring their idealism and passion into every aspect of their lives. Our students are campus and community leaders, taking part in an array of student organizations (as well as editing the school's eight journals) and enjoying the social and recreational opportunities that the New Haven area has to offer. Through it all, the Law School provides a range of services to support its students—from academic counseling offered by the Office of Student Affairs to advice for the path ahead at the Career Development Office.

New Haven & the Region


“Today, the city is known as Connecticut’s ‘Culture Capital,’ with abundant theaters, music and museums, well-preserved history and world-class culinary options.” - The Washington Post, 2019

The clinics at YLS offer students incomparable experiences in representation of poor and marginalized individuals and communities, real-world engagement in complex fields of law, and the development of strategic judgment critical to effective lawyering.”
