Ask Asha: Why should applicants choose Yale Law School?


Applicants should chose to apply to Yale Law School because of the unique environment that it provides. There are a lot of things that distinguish Yale Law School from other law schools. One is its small size. It’s an incredibly intimate environment. You get to know your professors and your fellow students very well. The other thing is that it provides a very flexible curriculum. So students who are self-directed, have a wide variety of interests, can really take advantage of the various resources that we have. Yale Law School would be a great place for them because you can start choosing your classes in the second semester of your first year. You can take clinics. You can participate in a number of our centers and programs and in general, as they say here, choose your own adventure in terms of creating your legal career.
