Scholastic Standing and Grading Policy

The Law School does not release class rank.

Duke Law School uses a slightly modified form of the familiar 4.0 scale. The modification permits faculty to recognize especially distinguished performances with grades above a 4.0. The highest grade given is 4.3. A grade of 1.5 or lower is failing.

The median grade for all first- year and upper level courses of 40 or more students is 3.3.


What's Being Said About the Duke Interviewing Process

I think that the Duke OCI process is one of the best law school recruiting processes in the country. The students are well prepared, professional and informed. They have obviously taken time to think about choosing to interview with our Firm beyond just the name or viewing us as “just another” firm. Further, the Duke career counselors are without exception the most attentive and finest staff at any law school in the country at which I have conducted interviews. They are not concerned about just getting a student a job but rather finding them a career in an environment in which they have an opportunity to have long term success. A breath of fresh air.
