I'm still trying to figure out why so many people are annoyed by roll bags.  I have one because I refuse to hurt my back; attempting to carry all of your law-school books on your back is quite stupid, if you ask me. 

Yes, I know that most law students have lockers, but if you work full time, you need to have all of your books at home, meaning you have to lug all of them to class every time you go.  Unfortunately, I don't have the "luxury" of being around the hallowed law-school halls all day long, where if I want to study a different subject, all I have to do is pay a visit to my locker.

They are extremely pretentious.

xferlaw and strong - why are you giving me advice on things that I'm already good at when I'm asking for recommendations in areas where I need improvement?

I misread OP and inferred he wanted to avoid being annoying.

Either way you phrase it you get the idea.

Trying to constantly correct the professor or make some nuanced point is annoying to others.

Belittle your classmates after they speak up in class--especially if the person got called on out of the blue.  If the person raised his hand first, maybe he has it coming, but it's still pretty annoying.

the worst is raising your hand WHILE someone else is on call before they even get the chance to answer.

Also whispering the answers or "no, no, no" to yourself  when someone is bombing being called on.

Being a gunner that incessantly and vigorously types all class long. Either get a silent stenograph or use a recorder.

Start all responses with, "I don't know where Other Student X got that idea, but proper research shows..."

I'll second those who say raising your hand while another student is talking is really irritating. Bonus points if you bounce in your seat like you have to pee while waving your hand.
