Well yeah, that’s a no brainer

law-students.jpgLast week, Above the Law asked if lawyers should date lawyers, and I gave the rather simple and undetailed response of “no.” In the comments, three elle touted the joys of law school students dating each other, which made me realize that I should clarify last week’s post.

Yes, lawyers totally shouldn’t date other lawyers.

But law students absolutely must date other law students.

Not for their own health and well-being, mind you, but for the entertainment of everyone else. That resulting drama is endlessly amusing and really helps you get through the whole law school thing. Plus, if it gives rise to learning about how one of your section-mates is into auto-erotic asphyxiation, a revelation that comes out in the middle of a crim law class, well, all the better.
