Sitting in the law library today...
« on: August 31, 2008, 09:11:46 PM »
and some random guy walks up to me and starts asking me about divorce law and multi-state judgments and so on while I was in the middle of reading.  Wouldn't let me get a word in edge wise, finally I told the dude I am not an attorney and cannot give legal advice.  He wouldn't give up though.  Finally I told the guy to consult an attorney because he wouldn't shut up and was wasting my time.  He got the hint when I finally picked my book up and pretended to start reading again.   Damn public university library rules about "citizen" access...

I don't think 1L's look different than 3L's to the average joe...

I feel for you.

As soon as people started finding out I got into law school, I started to get all kinds of dumbass legal questions that had the universal answer "go talk to a real lawyer".

I think it's just because people want free legal advice, even if it's bad legal advice, and everyone has a problem. I'd imagine that a lawyer can never get a break at a party, or even in the grocery store, if anyone knows that they're a lawyer.
