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. The Orientation Schedule will be posted later this summer. 

If you have any questions, please call (203-432-7979) or e-mail us ([email protected]).

We look forward to meeting you!

Yale Law School is distinguished among American law schools by two things: its small size—that’s a physical fact about the law school—and also the spirit of comradeship and cooperation that exists among all of the members of the community.”
