Student Directed Projects & Programs

Over the years, Yale Law School’s exceptional students have taken on issues and projects that capture their interests or serve the larger community. In the second term, students may begin participating in these programs, which are managed primarily by students under the general supervision of a faculty adviser.  
The student-directed programs for which ungraded credit is awarded are:

Domestic Violence Temporary Restraining Order Project
Green Haven Prison Project
Allard K. Lowenstein International Human Rights Law Project
Street Law
Thomas Swan Barristers’ Union
Morris Tyler Moot Court of Appeals
Yale Human Rights & Development Law Journal
Yale Journal of Health Policy, Law, and Ethics
Yale Journal of International Law
Yale Journal of Law & Feminism
Yale Journal of Law & the Humanities
The Yale Journal on Regulation
Yale Journal of Law and Technology
Yale Law & Policy Review
The Yale Law Journal

In general, one unit of ungraded credit per term is awarded for participation in these programs.  Credit is awarded for work on the student-edited journals listed above only for substantial editorial work.  No more than a total of 5 credits in student-directed programs may be counted toward the degree, and no work for which compensation is received may earn credit toward the degree.
