Take it slow with dating, dont date early in the year, or you risk cutting yourself off socially. Get to know people first, beware of one night stands, drunken sex, dont lie to get anyone in bed, dont cheat, etc. If you're to date within your class, do it discretely, profesionally, maturely, etc.
I'm curious if law school students get involved in relationships a lot. It seems like a really bad idea, especially considering all the work everyone says there is during the first year.

It seems like a really bad idea, especially considering all the work everyone says there is during the first year.It seems to creat a lot of drama. So I would tread lightly until you know if it's going to be somewhat serious. I don't think you want the HS drama to get in the way of your studies. With law schools being so small and competitive people are really in your business. If you don't mind and can ignore it, go for it, if not, ask yourself "Is the juice, worth the squeeze?"
There's a difference between hook-ups and dating. The former might be ill-advised in any small community, but to say, "You shouldn't date a fellow student" seems silly. You can pretty much guarantee that as soon as you tell yourself it's not convenient for you to have a relationship, you'll meet someone. You can't (and shouldn't) micromanage life that way.
Agreed... Arent there a lot more important things to worry about in law school and in life in general than wether or not its socially exceptable to date or hook up with a fellow law student.. Mang.. some of you guys scare me with all this up-tight professionalism b u l l * & ^ %.. I mean, Ive worked in the consulting business (engineering) for three years and no one gives a rats arse about dating within the office.. There are MORE important things to worry about.. Sure, if you think breaking up will mean "high school drama" for the remainder of your law school years you probably shouldnt do it.. But, arent most men and women in law school a wee bit more mature than that.. I dunno.. this whole discussion just seems weird to me..
I'm sorry, but I just find this very hard to believe. You are a 1L, so we'll take your word for it. But I have NEVER heard of twenty somethings making sexual relations a frowned upon practice.Phanatic.
I have very few friends that have gone to law school, but both the male and female friend mentioned that there was plenty of hooking up, or opportunities to do so, and that there was plenty of gossip about it.
