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 want you to think of Yale not just as the place you received your legal education, but as one of the places where you found your moral compass.”
