About Law & Economics

The Law School is at the heart of a movement to expand the once-narrow field of law and economics to embrace a broader intellectual enterprise that applies the methods of economic analysis to almost all areas of law. Much of the Law School's activity in this area is carried out by the John M. Olin Center for Law, Economics and Public Policy.

History of Law & Economics at Yale Law School

When I came to law school, I never imagined that I would be an advocate and decision-maker as early as my second semester of law school. The clinical program at YLS empowers students to experience lawyering outside of the classroom by interacting with clients and making decisions.
