Degrees at Yale Law School


Yale Law School offers five degree–granting programs. Joint degrees are conferred by the law school and other Yale graduate programs. In addition, a limited number of visiting researchers and visiting students are welcomed each year. Learn more about the different degree programs available.

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.”
