The Graduate Student Assembly’s legal aid program can offer assistance in circumstances where a tenant would like to pursue legal action. Each month during the academic year, graduate students have the opportunity to meet with volunteer lawyers from the New Haven Bar Association for a one-on-one consultation. Graduate students can also access a list of local attorneys for free consultations and discounted service fees. If interested in this list, please email the Assistant Dean of the Graduate School, Richard Sleight.
Note: This Attorney Referral List has been compiled to assist graduate students in finding legal services at an affordable rate. Yale University is not responsible for the quality of the services provided, for the ultimate outcome of any matter, or for the terms of any agreement entered into with an attorney on this list.
Other groups may help advocate for you against your landlord:
- New Haven Legal Assistance

- The New Haven Fair Rent Commission
- The Connecticut State Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Fair Housing and Equal Opportunity Office.
