Student Journals & Organizations

Student Journals & Organizations

With more than 70 official student organizations and nine different journals, there are a number of ways for students to get involved outside of the classroom at Yale Law School.  Learn more about our student organizations and publications by exploring our site, or find out about funding opportunities available to YLS students. 

Current students may also access the Student Activities Resources portal on Yale Connect (login required) which contains information to help students engage in various extracurricular activities as well as connect with other community members (i.e., students, faculty, and staff).

The Office of Student Affairs provides administrative support to the subject-specific journals, including assistance with publication processes, budget monitoring and management, and web site maintenance.

Student Organizations

The list of student organizations changes every year, based on the activities and interests of current students. The Law School provides a budget, shared storage space, and administrative resources to approved student organizations.

Student Organization and Journal Fair

Each fall, Yale Law School hosts a Student Organization and Journals Fair. At the event, each group sets up tables and meets with new students so they can learn more about the range of activities available.

Yale Law School prepared me for a lifelong career in public interest and social justice work through its academic excellence, hands-on clinical practice, and expansive student-led leadership opportunities.
