Why Duke, Why Now?

Duke Law is serious about academics. But we're also serious about creating "whole lawyers," people whose lives and interests and work complement each other. Here, you'll find a community of people who are as passionate about life as they are about their studies. We balance hard work with fun, intellectual engagement and purposeful living. At Duke Law, we firmly believe you can have it all.
