New & Current Student Admissions

Using a combination of loans and grants/scholarships, we make every effort to provide students with the difference between their resources (such as family resources, summer earnings, and student savings) and the cost of attending Yale Law School.

Financial Aid Support

Currently, 72% of our student body is receiving some form of financial aid in the 2013-2014 academic year. More than half (57%) of our students qualified for Law School institutional scholarships, averaging $22,778 per student. In total, Yale Law School disburses over $8 million annually in institutional support to its J.D. candidates

We have to ask ourselves if we really believe we don’t have a person to waste, if we really think people who follow our laws — no matter how different they are from us — should have a place at the American table.”
