International Students

Welcome International Students

Dean Heather K. Gerken with the LL.M. class of 2023

Every year approximately 75 students who are not U.S. citizens are enrolled at Yale Law School (evenly divided between the J.D. program and the graduate program). We welcome these students and seek to make their transition to Yale Law School a smooth one.

Yale University hosts nearly 3,500 international students and scholars representing more than 100 countries. The Office of International Students & Scholars (OISS) is responsible for the general welfare of international students at Yale. OISS is available to answer students' questions and to help with any problem that a student might have. OISS serves as a resource on immigration matters for the Yale community. Incoming students and scholars are asked to check in with OISS after arriving at Yale.
