Duke Law School is located directly next door to the Fuqua School of Business and across the street from the Sanford School of Public Policy, and close to all other professional schools. This central location facilitates interdisciplinary research and teaching across the campus.

Duke Law School has undergone significant renovation in recent years. The addition of Star Commons, a beautiful new atrium space, and the renovation of the J. Michael Goodson Law Library have greatly enhanced the school's facilities. All of the Law School’s classrooms also have been renovated into state-of-the-art teaching spaces. The clinic wing, fashioned as a separate law office, provides what Professor Carolyn McAllaster describes as “the best clinic space in the country.”

Duke Law School also offers opportunities to enjoy outdoor study and relaxation. The Beber Sculpture Garden is a quiet, wooded area with ample tables and study locations as well as a barbecue space for community gatherings. Marcy's Garden and Noble Plaza include additional seating and open, grassy areas for relaxation or the occasional Frisbee toss.
