Graduation events, including the Law School's Convocation, have been postponed. Duke remains committed to having an in-person celebration of the Class of 2020 on campus at a later date. This page will be updated as information becomes available. Please contact the Office of Student Affairs with questions.

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, 2020 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 2021. At that time, all access will end, and any messages and files will be deleted and unrecoverable. Messages addressed to your address on and after that date will be returned to the sender as undeliverable. Your address will continue to function if you have changed its target from your Duke Office 365 account to another email account you have (your work or personal email, for instance).

Proofs of your individual Law School Convocation pictures will be e-mailed to you directly from the photographer (Photo Specialties) within one week of the event and mailed within two weeks. Instructions on how to order will be included.
