Law License Plates: First-Tier Degrees on Second-Tier Cars

Oopsie, it’s been quite a while since we last discussed law-related vanity license plates. We haven’t updated the series in a while, but that doesn’t mean we’re not looking for more photos. So if you’re a fan of our Law License Plates posts, please send some in via email (subject line: “Vanity License Plate”).

Today, we’ll be writing about lawyers who really, really love their law schools. Because hey, let’s face it, with six figures of student loan debt, these educational institutions basically own you. Why not brand your car with your law school’s name and let the world know who you’re enslaved to?

But loan debt and all, we really thought that graduates of the so-called “T14″ could afford to drive nicer cars….

Today’s law license plates come from law schools that are tied at #7 on the 2013 U.S. News & World Report law school rankings. These schools also went the twinsies route when shoving their students onto the clerkship lifeboats during the height of the recession. Can you guess which law schools we’re talking about?

First up, we’ve got a driver who you can really pop your collar for:

With their less than impressive employment numbers, it’s no wonder that an alumnus is driving a poor man’s luxury vehicle. Perhaps a career in architectural rejection letter artistry would have yielded a more prestigious ride. Why not just pull an alleged Joshua Gomes, break into the nearest Mercedes dealership, and yoink some financing paperwork? But don’t get yourself arrested while doing it. That would just perpetuate the UVA Law stereotype.

Next, we’ve got an environmentally-friendly lawyer who’s “always faithful”:

Penn Law might be the best law school for getting a Biglaw job, but this lawyer’s Biglaw salary is obviously being spent in other places. But then again, maybe this driver went to the Happy Valley campus of U. Penn State Law. The two schools are just so similar that there’s no real way to be sure.

Readers, do you know any T14 grads who are driving cars as prestigious as their degrees? Then show us! We encourage you to continue to send us other amusing law-related license plates by email. Thanks!
