Yale Law School Continues Dorm Living

Students at Yale Law School used to live on campus, but the building used has since been deemed useful for other things, taking away the dormitory living experience. Not anymore. According to Fox News, Christina and Robert C. Baker have bestowed twenty-five million dollars to Yale Law School to bring back housing for students. Renamed after Baker and his wife, the 137,000-square-foot building will once again provide living conditions for its Ivy League students. President of Yale University, Peter Salovey, commented, “Residential life was central to the Yale Law School experience up until a few years ago. Robert Baker’s commitment to making on-campus living once again possible for law students is generous and visionary, and will allow future generations to know the benefits of a community where living and learning are closely connected.”

Baker graduated from Yale College in1956 and from Yale Law School in 1959.  He is the founder, chairman and CEO of National Reality & Development Corp; it is one of the largest private development and ownership firms in the country. Baker expressed, “This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for Yale Law School to acquire from the university a facility which is only one block away from the Sterling Law Building. I hope my gift will inspire other alumni who appreciate the importance of residential living to the student experience to support this project.”

Yale Law School is located in New Haven, Connecticut and is one of the world’s premier law schools. The prestigious school’s humble origins go all the way back to the nineteenth century.
