Alumni Career Resources

Main Content

The Career and Professional Development Center has collected resources on this page to facilitate alumni in their professional development, job searches, and other professional needs. We also recommend checking out Duke University's Career Resources.

Duke Law alumni can connect through the Duke Law Alumni LinkedIn Group, stay engaged through the Duke Law Alumni Network, and take advantage of the entire Duke network by registering for the University’s online directory. To find contact information for other potential connections, Duke Law alumni have continued access to Firm Prospects. For tips on networking:
