Welcome to Yale Law School!

We are really looking forward to having you join us. We are here to help with your transition as you enter the Yale Law School community. Orientation 2018 will take place on Monday, August 20 through Thursday, August 24, with optional activities on Friday, August 25. You can use the links to help you navigate the various online resources and settle into YLS and New Haven. You can find the Orientation Schedule posted on YaleConnect.

If you have any questions, please call (203-432-7979) or e-mail us (law.studentaffairs@yale.edu).

We look forward to meeting you!

You can make a difference… The history of the last 40 years happened because people like you entered the fray and chipped away at problems that they were told were politically impossible to fix.”
