The Duke Legal Clinics allow students to build an experiential bridge between law school and practice. Operating collectively as a public interest law firm with eleven distinct practice areas and housed in its own wing of the law school, the Duke Legal Clinics provide students challenging opportunities to deepen their substantive legal knowledge, strengthen their lawyering skills, and build their professional identities.
As they represent clients from the Durham community and beyond, clinical students benefit from close guidance from clinical faculty and supervising lawyers. Building on traditions established in the 1930s, when Dean Justin Miller established Duke's first legal clinic (one of the first in the country), the Duke Legal Clinics combine the development of skills and knowledge with service to the community in ways that strengthen students' legal education and prepare them for leadership in the law and beyond.
