Visit & Tour

The best way to understand the spirit of the Law School and decide if it's a good fit for you is to visit.
Located in New Haven, Connecticut, just 1.5 hours from New York City and 3 hours from Boston, Yale Law School welcomes visitors, especially prospective students. Current students lead tours of the Law School during the school year, October-December and February-April. Tours are offered at 1:00 on Monday, Thursday, and Friday. Please email the Admissions Office (admissions.law@yale.edu) to sign up for a tour. You may also be interested in a self-guided tour of the Law School or a tour of the Yale University campus.

Please email us to register for a student-guided tour.

You’ll find the Law School in the Sterling Law Building on the 410-acre Yale campus, with its impressive neo-gothic architecture, extensive athletic and recreational facilities, and 26 libraries. Downtown New Haven is a short walkable block away, and offers restaurants, shops, bookstores, and a lively night life. Take an online tour of the New Haven Neighborhoods on our site and check out Living in New Haven. You can also take a self-guided tour and explore New Haven. When you arrive on campus, please register in the Admissions Office to get further information on visiting classes. The office is open Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. The Admissions Office is located at 133 Wall Street, Ruttenberg Hall, on the first floor, room 175.

You may want to schedule your visit to coincide with a particular event or class. Please check our calendar of events and class schedule for more information.
