Maybe you could take a look at the websites of US + UK law firms located in the mentioned countries and search for graduates from both schools, Maybe it could give you an idea of how the market sees UMich and Duke grads.

In Spain, both are well-known.

I completely agree with Toni: was admitted by both Duke and Michigan and if I had to choose between the two I wouldn't have any doubts in terms of Michigan being perceived (and I repeat: Perceived) as more prestigious in my country.

That´s a bad joke, but I doubt that the Wolverines are better known overseas than Duke´s lacrosse team... sorry, I couldn´t resist...

I think in academia Michigan is more well-known. I guess it depends on your area. James Hathaway at Michigan, for example, is THE name in refugee law.
Duke, on the other hand, is known as "The Harvard of the South". Whatever that means.
It will be warmer at Duke. Michigan will be freeeeeezing.
I don't think you can go wrong really but I would tend to go with Michigan.
