Travel & Accommodations
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 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 convenient. 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.
Conference attendees traveling to and from John F. Kennedy (JFK) or LaGuardia (LGA) can take advantage of a special semi-private airport shuttle rate from Q-Conn Shuttle or Car Service. Discounted shuttle fare is $45 each way. Please use the discount code "Yale Law" when purchasing your shuttle fare on Q-Conn's reservations system.
