This is problematic...I don't know how to drive and had no plans to start...Looking at Station 9, which looks kinda walkable...but apparently its party central for b-school people...
Station 9 is not in walking distance of the law school, unless you want to walk 40 minutes to class. There are buses that run from that area to Campus so if you really don't want to learn how to drive that is an option. But, Durham is spread out so a car is pretty much a must if you want to spend any time with friends.
I would recommend a car (I've lived in the area for a while), but if it's just not an option, getting a bike a strategically using the buses could work.
The buses that run near Station 9 aren't of much help in getting you to the law school (the business school students who live there tend to share rides or drive themselves). If you really don't want to drive, get a bike and live somewhere off Erwin (The Lofts, Erwin Terrace, Belmont, etc) or in a house/old apartment off East Campus. If you live near East Campus, you can catch a bus (the C-3, if I'm not mistaken) that gets you close to the law school.
