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.
One of the things that makes this job magic is the students. They’re unbelievably smart, the best lawyers you can imagine. But they care so deeply. And what always amazes me is they’re unfailingly modest about what they do.”
Dean and Sol & Lillian Goldman Professor of Law
