Welcome to Yale Law School!

We are really looking forward to having you join us. We are here to help with your transition as you enter the Yale Law School community. Orientation 2016 took place on Monday, August 22 through Friday, August 26. You can use the links to help you navigate the various online resources and settle into YLS and New Haven. We also invite you to read "Welcome to Yale Law School, Class of 2019," a useful article about the law library and its services.

If you have any questions, please call (203-432-7979) or e-mail us (law.studentaffairs@yale.edu).


The Yale Law School you are entering has never been a law school that simply defends what is. Your law school —Yale Law School—has always been a law school that fights for what ought to be.”
