Duke Law values knowledge in the service of society, and our faculty is engaged in scholarship that addresses some of the biggest challenges of our times, including climate change, financial regulation, intellectual property protections, and human rights.

Many professors bring extensive experience in government, private practice, or public interest positions to their teaching and research, and they are often engaged in such activities as Supreme Court advocacy, expert testimony at congressional hearings, and media commentary.

From matters as diverse as doping in sports, access to life-saving medicines in developing countries, constitutional reform in emerging democracies, and review of wrongful criminal convictions, Duke Law faculty are engaged in problem-solving and scholarly exploration at the highest levels of the academy, government, and legal practice.
