Yale Law School is located at 127 Wall Street, New Haven, Connecticut, and occupies the block bounded by Grove, York, Wall, and High Streets at the heart of the Yale campus in downtown New Haven.
By trains and planes:
Trains run regularly to New Haven from New York City (via Metro-North Railroad or Amtrak) and from Boston and Washington, DC (via Amtrak). US Air provides connections to Tweed-New Haven Airport from many U.S. cities. Bradley International Airport in Hartford (BDL) accommodates all major airlines (including the economy airlines such as Southwest) and has direct flights to most major cities. It is located about 40 miles north of New Haven and may be reached by either car or Connecticut Limousine's Shuttle Service. The three major New York airports - John F. Kennedy (JFK), LaGuardia (LGA), and Newark (EWR) - are all accessible from New Haven by train or Q-Conn Shuttle or Car Service. Newark Airport has an Amtrak stop that connects directly to New Haven, making EWR particularly convient. Similarly, LaGuardia Airport is connected to the Metro-North Railroad by a New York City local bus (the M60), making transfers to New Haven from LGA both convenient and economical.

If you are a student, and are interested in staying with a Yale student while you attend the conference, please email V Prentice at firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject heading “Student Homestay for 2013 Conference”. We cannot guarantee that there will be student housing available for you, but we will do our best to find locations for all interested students. Keep in mind that it takes some time to coordinate housing, so please try to notify us of your need for housing as soon as possible to ensure that we can find a place for you.
Wireless internet access will be available at the conference. Accessing the internet through the "Yale Guest" network can be done easily through on-screen instructions.
We will have a very small room to store personal belongings near the conference registration table. However, we will not be able to lock this room during the day, nor will the registration table be staffed throughout the day. As such, please try to drop off any luggage or personal belongings off at your host's house or hotel before the conference.
