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 two dozen 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.
You can make a difference… The history of the last 40 years happened because people like you entered the fray and chipped away at problems that they were told were politically impossible to fix.”
