Duke Law students have been charting their employment course and laying the foundation for their job search since the first day of law school.
Our students are counseled closely to define their goals and to think about their skills, knowledge, and passions and how they can fit into a fulfilling professional life. The Career and Professional Development Center offers several opportunities for employers to engage Duke Law students in their recruitment efforts.
OCI Segment I
OCI Segment I is scheduled by a 100% lottery process, with interviews hosted virtually via Flo Recruit. Our 2024 program will take place July 30-August 2, with employer registration opening on March 11, 2024.
