Public Interest Law at Yale Law School
Yale Law School has a strong tradition of service in the public interest. Approximately 80 percent of students take part in a clinic during their time at the Law School, and unlike at other law schools, students can engage in clinic activities after the first term.
Ways to Engage
Yale Law School offers more than 30 clinics that provide students with hands on, practical experience in the law on a diverse range of subject matters.
Yale Law School offers a suite of innovative simulation courses based on real-world case studies.
Now it is time to pivot and ask, where are your extraordinary gifts needed? How do you make this legal world that you are entering a better world? One where no one is shut out; one where the weak and vulnerable are not exploited; one that produces fair results based on the merits of the issues before it.”
