Our mission is for every graduate to launch his or her career with the right job - not just any job. Almost all of our graduates are typically engaged in careers of their choosing when they graduate or shortly thereafter and we have one of the strongest employment records among U.S. law schools.
Blueprint for Success is a unique opportunity for key employers to connect with the Duke Law 1L Class in advance of the 2L recruitment season. Participating employers are invited to send representatives to discuss their client base and culture, spotlight growing practice areas, teach 1Ls about professionalism and practice, and build relationships before the rush of on-campus interviews.
ESQ is a professional networking symposium held by the Business Law Society, in conjunction with the Career & Professional Development Center and the Alumni & Development Office. The event gives all Duke Law students an opportunity to meet alumni, attorneys, and accomplished practitioners in a range of businesses, entrepreneurial ventures, and practice areas including corporate law.
Much of the hiring of our students is facilitated through Duke Law’s extensive on-campus interview program (OCI) , one of the largest among all American law schools. Hundreds of employers come to Duke, eager to interview Duke law students because they know our graduates make great lawyers. This event is held every semester.
