Public Interest Careers

Yale Law School has a strong tradition of service in the public interest. In addition to our rich curricular offerings related to public interest, around 80% of students take part in one or more of our 30 clinics during their time in law school. It is no surprise that many of our students pursue public interest employment during the summer and after graduation.
