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.
Getting to the law school from the train station:
If you are taking a train into New Haven, you can get to the law school or downtown very easily via a taxi, Yale shuttle, or city public shuttle.
The city shuttle, which runs on weekdays only, is a green bus and will take you downtown; if you get off at the New Haven Green, the law school is a 7 minute walk from there.
The Yale shuttle is a white or blue bus, and it will take you within 1 block of the law school. If you arrive on Friday before 6 p.m., you can take the Red Line Yale shuttle to the corner of College and Wall. On Friday evening or Saturday, take the Blue Line shuttle to the York and Wall stop.
An interactive map of the Yale shuttle is available at http://to.yale.edu/shuttle, or you can download the TransLoc app to view the shuttle's location on your smartphone.
Returning to the train station:
On Friday evening or any time on Saturday or Sunday, you can take a Yale Blue Line shuttle back to the train station. The stop nearest to the law school is on Wall St at College, and again, you can view the status of the shuttle on the interactive shuttle map linked above.
A free law school shuttle will also take you from the law school to any location downtown every thirty minutes at 8:15, 8:45, 9:15, etc. The shuttles running from 6:30-9:15 p.m. on Saturday will be able to take conference attendees directly to the train station.
