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 nine 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


“Connecticut's second-largest city has risen from its ashes to become an arts mecca. . . . At the city's center stands tranquil New Haven Green, bordered by graceful colonial churches and Yale. Ethnic restaurants, theaters, museums, pubs and clubs dot the city." - Lonely Planet Guide to New England, 2009

The people I was able to spend those three years with and think alongside and work alongside — they put me on a different path and it’s a path that’s allowing me to have a much larger and more meaningful impact on children than I would have had before.”
