The Duke University School of Law is the law school and a constituent academic unit of Duke University, Durham, North Carolina. One of 10 schools and colleges, the School of Law was established in 1930. The School features programs in Business, Comparative and International Law, Environmental Law, and Intellectual Property.

History

After intermittent periods of law instruction at Trinity College in Durham, the School of Law was established in 1904. When Trinity College became part of the newly-created Duke University with the establishment of the Duke Endowment in 1924, the School of Law became an integral component. Among other well-known alumni, President Richard Nixon graduated from the school in 1937.
