Address Updates

It is important for us to have your current address. As an alum, you’ll receive copies of Duke Law Magazine, periodic updates from the Dean and invitations to alumni events, but you won’t get them unless we have the correct address. You can update your address online, e-mail, or visit the Duke Alumni Association Directory (see below).

Alumni Directory/E-Mail Account

Around July 1, 2017 you will have access to the Duke Alumni Association Directory. This directory allows you to:

  1. search all Duke alums (not just Law alums); and
  2. see and update your contact information.

You will need to create your own user name and password through the Duke Alumni Association Directory login.

Around this time, you will also be able to sign up for a lifetime alumni e-mail address (ending in This is not a fully-functioning account; it is an address that will forward to another account of your choice (yahoo, hotmail, etc.).

Duke Law E-Mail/Server Access

You will continue to have your Duke-issued NetID, including access to your Duke Office 365 account and Duke file storage, until May 2018.

Messages addressed to your DUKE.EDU address on and after that date will be returned to the sender as undeliverable. Your email address will continue to function if you have changed its target from your Duke Office 365 email account to another email account you may have (your work email or Gmail, for instance). Link for more information and other details coming soon.
