Office of Student Affairs

The Office of Student Affairs at Yale Law School helps law students navigate their legal education from Orientation to Graduation.  We provide academic advising, support student groups and journals, promote student life and community building activities, and act as the primary resource for students who are seeking to find balance in their law school experience.   Our staff members have individualized specialties, and you can learn more about us here.

You can visit the offices of the Student Affairs staff members on the Mezzanine Level of Ruttenberg Hall in Suite M85 or contact the Office of Student Affairs at law.studentaffairs@yale.edu. For journal-related matters, please email law.studentjournals@yale.edu. To find our offices, take the staircase immediately to the left as you enter the main building from the 127 Wall Street entrance (where building services is located). Go up the first flight of stairs and enter the door on your left. Follow the hallway up a slight incline and past the clinical professors' offices to an open area with brick floors. Our office is straight ahead.

Our office hours during the academic year are Monday through Friday, 8:30 am to 5:00 pm.  During the summer, we are open from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm.  Feel free to stop by any time we are open! 

We understand that students arrive at Yale Law School with many different backgrounds and experiences, and it is our goal to ensure that the transition to Law School is as smooth as possible.  In doing so, we have put together a series of programs (Yale NetID required) that seek to guide students through their first term and provide them with the information they need to best take advantage of their Yale education, both inside and outside of the classroom.  We also have a variety of programs that focus on student mental health and wellness, which you can read more about here.  A listing of the Student Affairs community and wellness programming we will be offering for all Yale Law School students during Spring 2015 can be found here (Yale NetID required).

We recognize that these programs cannot possibly address all of the questions students may have during their time at Yale Law School, and welcome all students to stop by the Office of Student Affairs to talk about some of the more individualized questions and concerns people have.  If you’re not sure where to turn for help, please stop by our office.
