According to several researches, one of the most important issues and principles of sustainable development that urban professionals pay attention to it recently is Just City. One aspect of Justice in cities, spatial justice, has special significance by Unequal and discordant Expanding in cities in terms of creating unequal areas. On the other hand, the urban spatial structure affects on the equal distribution of elements and services. If this structure be devoid of justice ideology will lead to a complex social crisis and spatial issues as spatial conflict. Accordingly, the aim of this study is analyze the spatial justice and structure in the case of Yazd city to know how they influence each other. Spatial justice is analyzed from the point view of "Equality of opportunity " with three criteria "equality", "Physical diversity", "human diversity" and "urban spaces", and spatial structure based on “Space Syntax” technique with  "integration", "control", "connect" and " intelligibility " parameters. These criteria are Scored and analyzed by FDAHP techniques and GIS. The result shows favorable status in the central District and as getting away from the downtown disadvantaged District increased. On the other hand, the spatial structure analysis shows the most spatial coherent analog the north-south axis with a little depth and isolated District (Spatial segregations) have located in the corners and edges of the city. Final result from the superposition of these two analysis layers shows a compatibility relation between the spatial structure of Yazd and the pattern of justice distribution except in the central and historical center.
