About Us

"Law feeds and is fed by the world around it. Fortunately, that world is at least as aptly described and understood by the humanities as by the social sciences. Hence, and also fortunately, it is impossible fully to understand law without a deep and sympathetic knowledge of the liberal arts."

— The Honorable Guido Calabresi,
U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit and former dean, Yale Law School

In the twenty-six years since its inception, the Yale Journal of Law & the Humanities (YJLH) has become a premier forum for articulating the vital intersections between law and the liberal arts. Grounded in the ever-deepening awareness that interdisciplinary investigation is crucial to an understanding of both the law and our culture, YJLH provides a unique intellectual arena for encounters between law and a variety of disciplines.

YJLH is composed of students studying at the Yale Law School as well as graduate students studying humanities-related disciplines through the other graduate programs at Yale University. We publish two issues per year and are currently working on the first issue of our twenty-sixth volume.
