If you’re reading Above the Law, you want to go to law school, you’re in law school, or you graduated from law school. We hate to break it to you, but you and yours were some of the worst people on the planet as law students.
The law students and lawyers reading know this to be true. The prospective law students are still living in a dreamland where they think they’re going to bake and eat cakes filled with rainbows and smiles with their classmates, and be happy. You’re not going to be truly happy, not even one little bit.
You’re going to find a small group of people you think are normal, call them friends, and bitch about the rest of the gunners and freaks in your class. The rest of the gunners and freaks in your class are going to do the same thing, but they’re going to bitch about you. It’s like a high school clique-fest all over again, and you’ve even got the lockers to show for it. If you’re a law student, you’re probably a terrible human being.
Don’t believe us? We’ve got proof…
This was sent to us by someone frequenting Reddit during an early-morning Torts class today (hello 1L):
One law student’s reply in the thread was incredibly apropos:
I’m not [arrogant]. Arrogance is a flaw, and I don’t have any of those.
Google Autocomplete is infallible. Don’t you dare try to contest the results. Law students suck.
Seems legit [Reddit]
