Office of Student Affairs
The Office of Student Affairs at Yale Law School helps law students navigate their legal education. The office provides academic advising, supports student groups and journals, promotes student life and community building activities, and acts as the primary resource for students who are seeking to find balance in their law school experience.
In their first semester, all entering students are required to take four courses, one of which must be taken in a small group of 15 or 16 students. Immediately every student in the class has the opportunity to develop a close relationship with one of their four teachers.”
