Student Employment

Main Content

If you are planning to work as a Research Assistant, Teaching Assistant or any other position at the Law School, you must report to the Administrative Services Office prior to beginning work.  The Administrative Services Office is located on the first floor of the Law School in Suite 1015.  Take the stairs to the right on the second floor just past Career Services and turn right at the bottom of the stairs.  The staff in the Administrative Services Office can provide you with a student hire packet or you can download one from this site.  The student hire packet must be completed and submitted to the Administrative Services Office along with proper identification during a payroll meeting.  If you are already on the student payroll at the Law School or elsewhere at Duke you must set up a secondary position.  The download buttons below offer important information on student employment including how to get set up on student payroll and submit time cards.  Contact Cathy Perkins in Administrative Services at if you have any questions and to set up a payroll meeting.
