I doubt the directory is working for any of us 1Ls (different for 2Ls?). Too bad because using the directory was part of my plan to out everyone on here.

In case anyone wondered about this, we do not and cannot get a calendar folder in our Duke email account. I've setup Outlook to communicate directly with the external mail server addresses at Duke (since webmail is so clunky and inefficient), and also setup my Duke email on my mobile phone. I was hoping to get them to activate the calendar folder in my mailbox so I could have everything consolidated (emails, tasks, contacts, etc), but unfortunately that won't happen. IT support just got back to me saying they checked with the sysadmins and it isn't allowed for students to have the calendar folder available in their duke mail account.

So it looks like I'll have to use a separate calendar and sync it manually between my mobile and my laptop. Just wanted to share in the event this would be helpful to anyone else.

Try this guys:

https://www.law.duke.edu/studir/

Note the addition of the 's' after 'http.' If that doesn't work, they just must not have added y'all yet. Although I can see you... :mrgreen:

EDIT: Ah ha. You guys are not in there yet. The summer starters (and the members of my class who are really part of your class due to their duel degrees) are there, but you are not.

Go to blackboard. Communication -> Roster


You must be in my section. I think.


The directory isn't working for me either.


Thanks for the help! Also, if you're in my section -- sucks that the professor let us out late. I ended up getting a bad seat in Torts and now I'm stuck with it for the rest of the semester.

You actually use the Duke webmail? I just have it forward to my gmail and added the ability to send with that address to my gmail.

I just use iCal and sync it with my phone.

lololol x100000000!!!!

But yeah, I have mine forward to gmail as well, and have gmail mobile on my phone. I prefer to also have a direct connection to my duke email account to ensure faithful receipt of emails sent to that account. If the smtp forward function were to break (which can happen in an enterprise environment, for various reasons), I wouldn't want to risk missing official communication because I was relying on my gmail mailbox to tell me when I had new Duke email.

And now for a (hopefully) easy question: is there a shower area inside the lawl school building? Or one inside a building that is pretty close to the law school? By close I mean like Chem lot close, not green-zone-overflow-hell-you'll-be-sweating-like-a-waterfall-before-you-reach-the-freakin-law-school close.

They've got showers at the gym, which isn't necessarily Chem lot close, but it's way better than green-zone overflow lot close. I don't know if they have one in the law school, but you could probably try to hook up a hose-connected shower head to a sink and just wing it.

I really should start briefing torts instead of looking up pictures. This first class day has really taken it out of me though.

Bill Brown told me there's one in a bathroom down one of the faculty office hallways.

No problem! My UG used a very similar system so I know my way around it somewhat.

(and I guess you're actually not in my section)

This is relevant to my interests, as I may start biking to school (~4 mi.)

4 miles shouldn't be too bad most of the year. Just dress in a t-shirt and then put on another layer when you arrive. In the summer, I'd consider a change of clothes and these:

You are a very hard person to place as well. One time during orientation I recognized you but for some reason or another I didn't introduct myself (ok-I didn't want to out either of us to a group of seemingly normal people). I guess I could wear burnt orange every day until you spot me? iunno lol
