Motivations for supporting Yale Law School are varied and personal.

Some people see the School as a vehicle for perpetuating values and ideals and making a difference in the world because of what our students accomplish.

Others value what they themselves received from their predecessors and hope to pass it along.

For some, investing in the School is an investment in the teaching, research and intellectual influence of the exceptional faculty.

Whatever your interests and concerns, the Development Office has created a menu of opportunities that can be used to match them with the priorities and needs of the Law School.

Yale Law School is distinguished among American law schools by two things: its small size—that’s a physical fact about the law school—and also the spirit of comradeship and cooperation that exists among all of the members of the community.”
