Message from the Dean


The Yale Law School Community is committed to diversity and inclusion. Law is the instrument through which we pursue social justice and remedy past harms. Legal rules and institutions are accordingly sites of intense engagement and contestation. Legal rules and institutions earn legitimacy through continuous dialogue with all affected groups and perspectives. We cannot seek justice or imagine a better future without hearing the voices of all. Diversity and inclusion are therefore built into the DNA of Yale. It is essential for our mission.

Robert C. Post, Dean and Sol & Lillian Goldman Professor of Law

Yale Law School and Yale University have a number of policies and procedures in place to protect against discrimination in all its forms. These links offer information and support for our community members.

Diversity is important to the Yale Law School community because exposure to the widest variety of perspectives and experiences is essential to the practice and study of law—whether it be understanding the law, defending it, or changing it.”
