During his address, Dean Post also noted the diversity of the programs at Yale Law School, where in addition to the J.D. students, dozens of new graduate students will begin their studies this fall. These students include 22 LLM candidates, 3 MSL candidates, 13 transfer students, 8 JSD candidates, and 5 new candidates for the inaugural Ph.D. class. Incoming graduate students arrive from six continents and more than 23 countries around the world. “We will encourage you to learn from each other,” said Post. “Which is to say to listen hard to what your peers have to teach to you, and to respect—how difficult that is—the heterogeneous perspectives that your classmates in good faith will bring to a common conversation.”
