Journals & Publications Support


With more than 50 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 and competitions or other opportunities that are open to YLS students. 

Current students may also access the Student Activities Resources site (login required) developed to help students engage in various extracurricular activities as well as connect with other community members (i.e., students, faculty, and staff).

How To Get Involved


Student Journals & Publications

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.

This place has always been imbued with a restless spirit, the assumption that being the finest law school in the world is never enough, and a deep belief that you, our students, can do anything.”
