LOL!!!!!- WHAT A RIDICULOUS ANSWER; Why is it this man's job
You shouldn't read things into my answer that aren't there. I never said it was "the man's job" to do any of that.
And I said, "this man's job"- not "the man's job"- I wasn't saying you were putting it all on men, just on this guy in this situation.
soooo....You shouldn't read things into my answer that aren't there- right back at ya chump!

You shouldn't read things into my answer that aren't there. I never said it was "the man's job" to do any of that. ANYONE who wants to cover their ass, guy or girl, should try to minimize the risk of getting into something that can turn extremely ugly. And a guy OR girl just looking for a f**ck buddy may end up in a tough situation when their f**ck buddy decides they want a relationship and goes psycho. I've seen it happen on both sides (guy and girl) at my school - it's not just the women that decide they want more.
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
Ohhh, ok, I'll try to read more carefully. I didn't know "make sure" = should. And I'm sure you would have given the same answer regardless of gender- point is, it's such a woman answer/perspective implying that one must make sure they both want the same things before they can have sex- ridiculous. I mean what if he just wants to bang, she wants a relationship, then they start sleeping together for a bit and he gets to know her and they get on the same page...happily ever after. But no, there needs to be this ridiculous conversation of what each wants after some flirting. Talk about killing the mood.

i'm not going to get talked out of law school but a message board. i was here to just ask the question i asked.
What amazing strength of will you have. Now get back on the other board and don't crowd us with this garbage.

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.

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?
