There are a number of desktop computers available to you in the law school, mostly in the library, but as a Duke Law student, you are strongly recommended to have your own laptop. Duke Law School Academic Technologies has a page of useful considerations in purchasing a laptop.
Computers and computer related materials are sold in the Duke Computer Store, which is on the bottom floor of the bookstore in the Bryan Center. The bookstore runs special deals on PC and Macintosh packages, so check the bookstore website before buying a computer.
You will have computer sessions during orientation during which you will set up your laptop, but any further questions you have can be taken to the Help Desk theat the reference desk of the Law Library. The University’s Office of Information Technology service desk, for both software and hardware problems, can be found at the Link in the basement of Perkins Library.
For those with Apple, Dell or Lenovo laptops, you can also take your computer directly to Duke Computer Repair located at 3523 Hillsborough Road.
