At Yale Law School, we are committed to nurturing our sense of community and an important part of that is mutual respect.

Reports of sexual harassment and assault at Yale and other university campuses indicate that much remains to be done to ensure that all students feel safe coming to school, attending classes, studying, and engaging in extracurricular activities.

In an effort to address these issues, Yale Law School created a Title IX Working Group composed of students, faculty and administrators.  This Working Group advises on policies and efforts to address campus climate.  In addition, the Working Group is charged with developing educational programming and publications. The Working group recommended we create Title IX Peer Advisors who serve as a resource for students and can educate the YLS community.

There are many resources at Yale Law School and Yale University to support students who experience sexual harassment or sexual assault during their time here.  There is also counseling and support available to survivors of sexual assault and harassment.

We hope you will find this website to be a useful resource. If you have any questions or concerns or wish to become involved, please contact the Law School’s Title IX Coordinators, Associate Dean Ellen Cosgrove or Professor Douglas Kysar.

Title IX Peer Advisors


Title IX Peer Advisors help to educate the YLS community about sexual misconduct (including climate issues, policies, resources and penalties). The Title IX Peer Advisors serve as a resource for students who have experienced or learned of incidents of sexual misconduct, providing a peer connection to SHARE, the UWC, the Title IX Office, the Yale Police, and other resources.

Law students will be listed after completing their Training Sessions.
