Welcome to the
Yale Urban Law & Policy Society

About Us

The Yale Law Urbanists promotes dialogue among students about legal and policy issues affecting cities. The group hosts speakers who work in and with local government on a broad array of topics, including food and environmental justice, real estate and planning, and federalism.

Mission

Welcome to all YLS students interested in local and state government, as well as city life generally! We are a campus hub for engaging and discussing urban and local topics. We hope to keep providing a forum for members to pursue their urban and local interests with others who share them. At the same time, building our community within YLS and engaging with the New Haven community are at the top of our agenda.

If you are interested in any of the topics mentioned above, and believe in the power and potential of the law to change cities and local communities, then keep an eye out for us in the Fall!
