Fighting for the Rule of Law

Yale Law School

Founded in the early 1800s as one of the first law schools in the United States, Yale Law School is consistently ranked as one of the top programs in the world. During the spring semester of their first year, Yale students are encouraged to supplement their academic studies with real-world knowledge by taking part in a robust clinical program. With 30 clinics to choose from, students gain the opportunity to work on real cases and appear in court under the direction of a faculty supervisor.

Yale Law School's Worker and Immigrant Rights Advocacy Clinic (WIRAC) pursues high-profile immigration cases around the country, and works to train the next generation of civil rights lawyers through hands-on experience. WIRAC represents immigrants, low-wage workers, grassroots organizations, and labor unions on cases involving social justice issues, criminal justice, and civil rights. Taught by four Yale faculty members who are leaders in the field of immigration law, WIRAC has produced prominent civil rights lawyers fighting for justice across the country.
