Yale Law School, or YLS, is the law school of Yale University in New Haven, Connecticut. Established in 1843, it is one of the few schools belonging to the Ivy League that offers the J.D., LL.M. and J.S.D. degrees. In addition it also offers the M.S.L. degrees in law. It also hosts visiting scholars and a number of legal research centers. The school's prestige and small size make its admissions process the most selective of any United States law school. Yale has been ranked as the best law school in the country by U.S. News and World Report in every year in which the magazine has published law school rankings. Among other luminaries, former U.S. President William Howard Taft was a professor of constitutional law at the school from 1913 until he resigned to become Chief Justice of the United States in 1921. Presidents Gerald Ford and Bill Clinton received their law degrees at Yale Law School later in the century, and the law school's library has been memorialized as the meeting place of Bill and fellow student and current Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton.
