With its world-renowned faculty, fascinating students, and distinguished speakers, Yale Law School is an invigorating place to think about the law. In addition to a rich history and an accomplished student body, our unmatched faculty-student ratio allows us to offer a vast array of courses, an average class size of approximately 20 students, and countless opportunities for independent research, writing, and student-organized seminars. Some students choose to focus on traditional “black-letter law” classes, while others experiment with cutting-edge legal theory or interdisciplinary courses. Students may undertake independent writing projects following their own academic interests or organize reading groups around a specific topic. Conferences and panels throughout the year continue to explore ideas about the law and its role in society.
Yale Law School welcomes the opportunity to speak with you on campus regarding your plans to pursue a legal education. An admissions team member will discuss some of the unique aspects of our school and answer your questions about legal education, the application process, and life at Yale.
