The Yale Visual Law Project produces short documentary films on legal issues to advance public debate.
Education. We run a year-long practicum at the Information Society Project at Yale Law School that trains law students in the art of visual advocacy — making effective arguments through film.
Innovation. We explore the intersection between law and film through multidisciplinary workshops, discussions with renowned guest speakers, and hands-on production.
Advocacy. We produce intellectually stimulating and well-researched films grounded in the stories of people who live out the consequences of the law.
Community. We are part of a rising community of students, lawyers, and filmmakers invested in visual advocacy. Learn more about our grand experiment and sign up for news and updates.
