In the Housing Clinic, students can select one from among three tracks: foreclosures, evictions, or fair housing. Each track meets separately, and the full clinic meets weekly to discuss general policy issues, including the role discrimination has played in the government's and industry's treatment of homeowners and renters; ethics; and skills-training sessions. Students attend several sessions of the court handling cases in their respective tracks including, for foreclosures, the Clinic's Attorney for a Day Program. Fair housing case-scheduling may also involve additional legislative and policy projects, as this student team monitors whether the federal government's enforcement of fair housing programs has changed since the recent election. In addition to defending their clients' homes, all three tracks will handle cases seeking affirmative relief. Student teams also will tackle legislative remedies arising from the clinic's clients' cases.

Centers and Workshops

Yale Law School enhances the intellectual life of its academic community by sponsoring a variety of centers, programs, and workshops, inspired by the interests of its faculty and students.

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.”
