now entering hermit mode
Anonymous asked: Did you ever feel like quitting law school not because of the law, but because of the people? There are days when the people at my school are just so insufferable and behave like high school students.
The direct answer to your question is no, I never feel like quitting law school because of the people. Why? Because I know that most of them are going to be completely incompetent, unsympathetic lawyers, and the world needs people who aren’t like them in the field.
I agree that dealing with people at law school can at times be difficult. That’s why I just try to mind my own business. Honestly, most of the people I’ve met have really not been my type of people. I don’t want to party, I don’t want to be a part of all the gossiping, and I don’t want to share my notes/outlines. I do a lot of people watching/listening, and what I’ve observed really hasn’t given me any good vibes. Maybe somewhere buried in the student body are some quality people like you, anon, but I just haven’t met them yet.
My advice for you: STAY IN LAW SCHOOL ANON. Tune out the distractions and just do law school your way, even if it means living a semi-lonely three years. The legal field needs you and the world will benefit from your dedication.
Hope that answers your question, anon, and feel free to drop me a line if you have any others :D Also, if you ever need to talk to some people who aren’t your classmates, there are some awesome lawblrs around who I am sure are more than willing to keep you company :D

it’s time to pull out the handy-dandy bluebook
yet the Supreme Court can write 50 page opinions on just one sentence.
for some reason I feel sort of motherly towards them
