After the first semester, Yale Law's curriculum is entirely up to the students. Classes are very small (the school has the lowest student-to-teach ratio in the country), and the school has no formal concentrations or core courses. Nor does it have any formal rankings, curve systems or grades. That's right: in order to dissuade students from worrying over their GPA, Yale Law operates on a credit/no credit system the first semester, and a pass/fail one after that. The school has recently focused on human rights in the war on terror, spearheading the defense of Guantanamo detainees through its post-9/11 civil liberties clinic.
