Established in 2004, the Duke Law Student Paper Series is open to all JD, LLM, and SJD students at Duke who are interested in contributing to the exchange of legal ideas in the Law School community. While law school offers many opportunities to write memos and papers and take part in a multitude of legal discourses, the Series presents a unique forum for presenting ideas, trying out argumentation on fellow students, and improving writing skills. The workshop, provides students an opportunity to share their scholarship with other students, receive feedback from peers and guidance from faculty advisors. Participation in the Series allows for the development of presentation and argumentation skills that are valuable in any legal career.
