  • YLS Clinics Video Series

In the Spring of 2018, Yale Law School filmed video profiles on three clinics to showcase the incredible work of our students and faculty. This work transforms the lives of our students, their clients, and impacts the national conversation. The video series provides a closer look, through first-hand accounts, of the Worker & Immigrant Rights Advocacy Clinic (WIRAC), the San Francisco Affirmative Litigation Project (SFALP), and the Rule of Law Clinic. These clinics have been on the front lines of some of the biggest cases in the country, working to provide legal assistance to underserved populations and uphold the rule of law.

Yale Law School Clinics on the Front Lines

Yale Law School has one of the most robust clinical programs in the country, providing students with an unparalleled experience to combine theory with practice at the highest levels. Behind some of the biggest headlines in the country, there has been a standing army of students and faculty quietly but furiously working to fight for our core democratic values and protect the rule of law. This video provides an overview of the program with testimonials from students and faculty.
