Yale Society of International Law

The Yale Society of International Law (YSIL) aims to provide a comprehensive platform for YLS students to pursue their academic and professional interests in international affairs and international law.

In addition to hosting events with some of the world’s leading international legal academic and practitioners, YSIL is also a source for finding international law events, programs and fellowships hosted by other organizations at the law school, in the greater Yale Community, and at law schools across the country and the world.

YSIL is an expansive community that includes both current law students and alumni, and one of its key goals is to foster dialogue and mentorship between the two. YSIL also works to disseminate information about international legal moot court competitions as well as potential careers in international law.
