An Unmet Need:
Students should review existing student organizations at Yale Law School to ensure that the proposed organization does not duplicate any other organization’s objective, programmatic efforts, or a majority of the organization’s membership base. Should there be an unmet need, students may apply for the new student organization to be created.
Because adding new organizations means decreasing or limiting funding of existing organizations that have already proven successful, it is encouraged that students work with current student organizations to create new programs or engage in new activities when possible. (Note: There are mechanisms for existing organizations to request additional funding.)
