Video and Photography

It is permissible to shoot still photographs or video of Yale Law School exteriors. However, permission must be granted by the Office of Public Affairs to shoot still photography or video footage inside the Law School. Because our first concern is the welfare of our students, faculty and staff, we reserve the right to decline your request to film on campus if it is not considered in the best interests of the Law School or the University.

If permission is granted, the Office of Public Affairs will assist with parking, building access, and other logistics. A member of the Office of Public Affairs staff must be present with the videographer/photographer at all times while on campus.

The Office of Public Affairs maintains a small collection of photographs of the Law School and its faculty. Please contact our office to inquire about the use of photography and appropriate photo credits.

Yale University has a satellite uplink studio for live and taped transmissions and a digital (ISDN) radio studio. Please contact the Yale Broadcast Studio for more information.
