In addition, the online Writing Lab included in the program contains step-by-step instructions for preparing documents specific to the United States at a state and federal court level.

The program offers the convenience of an entirely web-based curriculum, but has the advantage of offering students one-on-one contact with an instructor who is a licensed attorney. Students move at their own pace through comprehensive materials with layers of educational support including texts, chapter notes, trial tests, mock exams, legal documents templates, and many other features. The instructor will grade exams, evaluate and provide feedback on assignments, and track student progress. Additionally, by not allowing students to move forward until they’ve mastered the material, instructors are able to ensure student success. As each segment of the course is completed, students must pass an online exam. Upon successfully completing the exam, students will receive a password for the next segment. This element is unique to the Duke program and helps students stay motivated and on-track.
