The combined debt my wife and I had when we graduated from law school… My colleague Staci Zaretsky met her fiance in law school; their debt is similarly obnoxious.
Sticking with your law school lover often also means starting your marital life in a hole so deep Batman couldn’t climb out of it.
By the slim chance that they don’t know, it’ll take them about 0.24 seconds to network and find someone who can.
I could go on, but that would just be bragging or worse, pitching a sale (and I’ve worked in a call-centre so trust me when I say it is the devil’s job).
The most revered form of contact in the law school is usually Facebook chat, because, yes, in-between those hours of computer study there are even more hours of procrastination via Facebook. Don’t even think about summer love – when holidays loom so does summer semester and clerkship season. Despite all our foibles, a relationship with a law student doesn’t have to be terrible, and there are magical success stories which illustrate how truly wonderful a law romance can be.
I used to joke with my wife that we were in a “race” to see who would quit first. She doesn’t think it’s that funny, and Above the Law readers think I’m some kind of roiling deadbeat, but lots of people in law school-based relationships have that kind of division of labor.The solution to all your problems lies somewhere between Falconer and Vic College. They’re Rich…or Will Be Soon Enough Even accounting for the massive amount of debt from law school, Law Students will be rich. Attorney-Client Privilege How does this relate to a non-legal relationship? Just mentioning your SO will give you automatic credibility. “My boyfriend, who’s in law school (at Uof T) said…” gives the impression that you’re right by virtue of the Law Student’s authority on whatever the topic is. You can then repeat it, and it just makes you look oh so very cultured and knowledgeable about worldly (albeit dead) languages. I mean, Law Students actually network, like in the real world.They’ll eventually be lawyers and lawyers make money. Well, they know the rules and that means they know what you confide in them stays privileged. *No need to be concerned about actually knowing what the words mean, chances are no one outside of law school will even know/care what it means. This means that when you need someone to do something for you, they’ll probably know a friend of a friend whose sister’s boyfriend from high school could do the job for you.The ABA Journal asks a holiday appropriate question this week: “Are you still with your law school sweetheart? We met when we were young and had hopes and dreams.” I find the term “law school sweetheart” to be gross and vaguely unnatural. You have people who will bang you when you come back from the library wearing sweatpants, people who will save you a slice of pizza because you always forget to eat while at your clinic, and people you can sleep with after exams are over who won’t mind that you actually . Or maybe even more, as long as you ask nicely.) But really, the question presented isn’t about the sad, “I’m too busy to put on heels to get laid” settlement negotiations that mark the start of most law school relationships. We met before law school taught us to “think like lawyers,” and so we still have a method of communicating that doesn’t devolve into a battle of the forms.
