Legal Assistance to Participants in the Academic Peer Review

The academic peer review process is essential to the perpetuation of excellence at Duke.  Accordingly, the university is prepared, to the extent permitted and in the manner provided by the North Carolina Nonprofit Corporation Act, to offer legal assistance and indemnification to the faculty members and librarians who face the risk of legal involvement and associated financial expense arising from their service to Duke University as a participant in the peer review process.
