SHOW STUDENT DETAILS

Duke has over 50 full-time faculty members and interaction between the faculty and students is encouraged by the school’s small size and the faculty’s open-door policy. “Duke has a particularly strong cluster of faculty experts in international and comparative law and national security and terrorism issues. No other top program offers substantive depth of knowledge in a wider range of subject areas.” (Duke Law Website)

Duke attracts a diverse student body that in a recent year has represented 38 states, 7 foreign countries and 108 undergraduate institutions. When it comes to student life, there are more than 40 student organizations and 8 law journals. In addition, “Duke Law School also offers opportunities to enjoy outdoor study and relaxation. The Beber Sculpture Garden is a quiet, wooded area with ample tables and study locations as well as a barbecue space for community gatherings. Marcy's Garden and Noble Plaza include additional seating and open, grassy areas for relaxation or the occasional Frisbee toss.” (Duke Law Website) Durham is home to many entertainment possibilities, including leisure activities such as, basketball games (yes, Duke Law students are eligible to attend Blue Devil basketball games at famed Cameron Indoor Stadium), art galleries, forest trails, bike paths and dance festivals, and “was ranked #5 on U.S. News and World Report’s Best Places to Live 2009 List” (Duke Law Website). For students who do not drive, you should keep in mind that public transportation is not readily available. Nevertheless, “Duke provides an on-campus bus service as well as a ride-home service at night.” (Duke Law Website)

With respect to student housing, the majority of students reside off campus in privately owned units. However, Duke does maintain apartments and “on-campus housing for graduate and professional students is provided in an undergraduate complex and is limited, with priority is given to students arriving from abroad on student visa status, and who have never attended school outside of their home country before.” (Duke University School of Law)
