First, if you're going to do it, you have to be prepared for the rumor mill.  Even if you do it in a car (btw: are you f-ing kidding me?  we're not in high school anymore), one of you will undoubted tell someone, who will tell someone else and soon everyone will know you slept together.

Second, if she's in your section, I would say no matter what, it's a bad idea, especially if your section is small.  Unless both of you are the type of person who is fine with being at least on neutral terms the day after the break up, things could become uncomfortable.

And third, make sure that you're both on the same page.  Essentially, if you're looking for nothing but a f**ck-buddy, make sure she has absolutely NO expectations of anything more.  If you're looking for a casual dating relationship, again, make sure she's there too.  This should go without saying for any relationship, but especially law school, where a bad breakup possibly caused from her wanting more from you in a relationship can exacerbate the two problems above.

LOL!!!!!- WHAT A RIDICULOUS ANSWER;  Why is it this man's job to "make sure she has absolutely NO expectations of anything more"???  If this girl gives it up to him without such a discussion she runs the risk its just sex to him- as it may be to her/ and if she wants more than it will be lesson learned...or not.  "make sure she's there too"- why? Again why is this his responsibility?  I assume she is an adult; he doesn't need to babysit her.

I think where a person sits is more important.  In my experience if you sit in the front row you can take at least the first 4-6 weeks off.

junior associates give blowjobs to more senior ones who in term blow the partners

who in turn hire a dominatrix to whip them.

I enjoy working with my brain

I think this is the part that is most frustrating because I also enjoy working with my brain- i.d. issues and make arguments based on authority- it's not exactly brain surgery.  It must be a personality thing that allows an individual to enjoy for example writing a legal memo that basically any other decent student/ lawyer could write.  And I'm not insulting anyone, I'm honestly jealous because I wish I could be more robotic instead of needing unique challenges to stimulate my brain.

Maybe I'll just build a boat and sail around the world.  Either that or pump gas for 40 yrs.

This seems like a pretty simple problem.  If you really hate research and writing, then law is not for you.

Does anyone really like writing legal memos?  Isn't that like saying you enjoy diarrhea?  And research- can be interesting but what about 10 years from now? Assuming someone doesn't have a younger associate doing most of that for them won't they have problems not vomiting on a daily basis?

I feel the same as you. I think it takes a certain personality type to enjoy it. I was in law school a couple years ago and liked it but had to leave and now I've come back and its not the same.  I haven't gotten any smarter and there are plenty of people smarter than me but for some reason I just don't find it intellectually stimulating anymore.  I do find some of the material interesting but I also HATE researching garbage cases and writing memo's on trash issues.  It's not challenging and boring and it will be that way for a long time. I can't imagine logging long hours for this. In my case I think it's because I have really changed a lot in the last couple years.

Anyways, I agree that if you can't get a refund might as well take exams but I don't agree to go the full year if you KNOW it isn't for you.  I need unique challenges or I go insane. At present I am going insane but don't want to say anything horrible about it because everyone else seems so into it. I am trying to leave but have a very specific set of circumstances that make it difficult.  If possible I am taking a business analyst/ consulting position that is waiting.

Kinda relieved to know someone else feels the same. Best of luck.

Instead of saying that the things you heard are untrue, it seems as though you shoudl be saying that your CivPro class has been an exception to the rule.

Yes, there are exceptions, and some professors run their classes differently than the norm.

To say that these two things you heard are untrue because ONE of your 4 or 5 classes isn't run that way seems a bit of a stretch.

Blah, Blah, Blah.
