Academics


From the first day of orientation to the final gathering at Commencement, Yale Law School is an extraordinary community in which to study law. In addition to a rich history and an accomplished student body, our unmatched faculty-student ratio allows us to offer a vast array of courses, an average class size of under 25 students, and countless opportunities for independent research, writing, and student-organized discussion groups.

With almost 200 courses taught by more than 60 full-time faculty and dozens of visiting faculty, lecturers, and adjunct professors, the choices for the study of law at Yale Law School are only as limited as your imagination.

Lillian Goldman Law Library


Located in the Sterling Law Building, the library has almost 800,000 volumes of print materials and about 10,000 active serial titles, in which there are 200,000 volumes of foreign and international law materials.
