A Message from the Board

Welcome to Yale Law School! The Catholic Law Students Association (CLSA) is the home for Catholics at YLS. In addition to organizing public speaker events, we also serve as a community for Catholic students. Our goal is to build fellowship among all Catholics and seek to bridge divides that might otherwise keep YLS students apart. This upcoming year, we will be continuing our commitment to service and community building. We have an ongoing relationship with St. Thomas More, the Catholic Chaplaincy at Yale, with whom we organize service and social events. We also periodically organize trips to mass, especially on Holy Days and the first Friday of every month. We look forward to meeting you!
