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, 73% of our student body is receiving some form of financial aid in the 2016-2017 academic year. More than half (60%) of our students qualified for Law School institutional scholarships, averaging $25,516 per student. In total, Yale Law School disburses over $9 million annually in institutional support to its J.D. candidates

My degree was the symbol of a collective sacrifice, collective struggle, and my obligation as a recipient of that degree was to continue the struggle, continue the fight, to continue that profound purpose.”
