SHOW STUDENT DETAILS

“The Yale Law School faculty is as broad ranging in its interests and expertise as it is distinguished. It includes prominent scholars of economics, philosophy, and psychoanalysis, as well as leading specialists in every area of law. Over 60 full-time professors are joined each year by visiting lecturers, adjunct professors from other parts of the University, and practicing lawyers who assist the full-time clinical faculty as tutors in the clinical program. In addition, dozens of guest lecturers from around the world help to make Yale Law School a vibrant intellectual community.” (Yale Law Website)

Yale Law School has a diverse student body. Each year, the school welcomes approximately 650-75 students from throughout the United States and 30 countries around the world. When it comes to student life, “Yale Law School students are at the center of a vibrant community. Whether attending classes, organizing a slate of engaging conferences and events, or volunteering to work for the public interest, our students bring their idealism and passion into every aspect of their lives.” (Yale Law Website) For example, the law school has nine journals and a wide variety of student organizations. In addition, students have access to “Yale’s world-class athletic facilities, including tennis courts, indoor swimming pools, ice skating rinks, and a modern gym. Also, a year-round series of fitness and recreational programs are offered for members of the Yale Community and their families.” (Yale Law Website)

For students who wish to venture off campus during their pastime, New Haven offers an abundance of social and recreational activities. “Strolling the streets immediately around the Law School, you'll pass shops and restaurants to suit any taste or budget. Cultural attractions and outdoor recreation are plentiful for such a small New England city.” (Yale Law Website) For example, New Haven is home to art galleries and two major museums; namely, the Yale University Art Gallery and the Yale Center for British Art.

When it comes to housing, most law students live off campus in New Haven and nearby neighborhoods. The law school maintains a list of off-campus housing, which is available to admitted and current students. Yale University also manages a number of graduate student housing complexes, which includes units suitable for married students and students with families.
