It consists of the university name in thin and straight fonts over a bright red colored background. The word “Stanford” is written in white color while “Law School” is written in black. It is this combination of white and black with red that makes it bright and ageless.
The Yale Law School logo consists of an image of an alligator on a green colored background, a grey hound on a gold colored background and silver staples on a black colored background. This design first appeared in 1956 and each element of the pattern has a unique significance. The law school was started by Seth Staples in the early nineteenth century which is why the emblem consists of silver staples. Samuel Hitchcock, whose family had emigrated from Wales to British West Indies, was Staples successor in 1824. He was considered the institute’s moving spirit until 1845. The Hitchcock family was represented by an alligator, which was inspired by the traditional dragon image that was used to represent Welsh entities.
