Scholastic Standing and Grading Policy
The Law School does not release class rank. Duke Law School uses a slightly modified form of the familiar 4.0 scale. The modification permits faculty to recognize especially distinguished performances with grades above a 4.0. The highest grade given is 4.3. A grade of 1.5 or lower is failing. The median grade for all first- year and upper level courses of 40 or more students is 3.3. For more information, please review our full Grading Policy.
