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.

The Yale Visual Law Project is housed at the Yale Law School Information Society Project. For more information, please contact [email protected].

    Dear colleagues,
    I was very pleased to discover “The Yale Visual Law Project.”
    As the moderator of the community on multisensory law at C. H. Beck publishers, I would like to draw your attention to this community (see http://community.beck.de/gruppen/multisensorylaw). As you can see, this community consists of different fora, such as the forum on visual law and the forum on audio-visual law.

    Perhaps you might be interested in reading one of my postings (see http://community.beck.de/gruppen/forum/audio-visual-law/the-fate-of-the-iconic-sign-taser-video-by-christina-spiesel-yale-law-school).

    Wishing you good luck with your project!

    Colette R. Brunschwig
