Last night, we presented our readers with the top-ranked law schools for best social life — party schools, if you will. Everyone oohed and ahhed, and wondered why they hadn’t enrolled at those particular schools. But if it had been a ranking of the law schools with the worst social scene, everyone would’ve taken a look for the pure Schadenfreude of it all.

That ranking doesn’t exist yet, but we’re more than willing to bet that the picture for our latest caption contest comes directly from a law school where you can kiss your dreams of a fabulous social life goodbye….

It’s the last day of December, so it’s a good time to look back on the year that was. We’ll do what we’ve done for the past three years (wrap-up posts from 2009, 2010, and 2011 can be found here, here, and here) and identify the ten biggest stories of the past year as decided by you, our readers. With the help of Google Analytics, we’ve compiled a list of our top ten posts for 2012, based on traffic (as represented by pageviews).

By the way, for the third year in a row, the most popular category page on Above the Law was Law Schools. People have now been intensely focused on the declining value proposition of going to law school for as long as it takes to earn a Juris Doctor degree. Isn’t it time that we graduate from the current educational model?

The second and third most-popular categories on ATL in 2012 were Biglaw and Bonuses. Although this year brought us the largest law firm failure ever, nearly all other firms indiscriminately doled out offers to summer associates, and bonus season looked better for the first time in years. While the legal profession is still in transition, things are certainly looking up, and through the highs and the lows, we’ve been there to cover it all.

So what were the ten most popular individual posts at Above the Law in 2012? Let’s find out….

You know how we know it’s law school finals time? Because we keep receiving crazy pictures taken in law school libraries in our inbox.

This time, we’ve got to ask: just how low are law school admissions standards these days? Maybe this law school took the lawyer dog meme a bit too seriously and thought that all dogs go to law school, as opposed to heaven, like in that 80s cartoon movie. Just imagine how much “fun” it would be to watch a gunner dog barking at the professor in class.

Here’s the photo for our latest caption contest….

Party time?

It’s finals time already. For professors, that means another semester is in the books. Sure they still have to grade the exams, but that’s what stairs are for.

With their teaching duties done, the faculty at the University of Memphis School of Law decided to have a holiday party, with a band, in the reading room of the library while students were studying for finals.

Kind of brings new meaning to the term “tone deaf,” doesn’t it?

In October, we brought our readers news of a lusty lady who pleasured herself in a top law school’s library. From the looks of it, others are hoping to grab a piece of that cam girl’s action, because T14 law school libraries now seem to be the best places to strip out of your clothes, revel in your own hotness, and get rid of your Blue(book) balls.

Don’t believe us? We’ve got proof!

Here’s the photo for our latest caption contest….
