Law School Prom?
« on: January 30, 2007, 10:21:45 PM »
What is this Law School Prom that everyone keeps talking about?? This is brand new information. I guess LS is very much like High School in certain respects. Any 1Ls want to tell us what these "proms" are like?? I'm actually very curious... somehow cannot imagine it. :)

we have one only we call it oour "spring formal".  Its nothing like a high school prom. Everyone gets dressed up in suits (i dont think anyone wore a tux) and gets drunk.  The student bar association usually has some cash left over to use to rent out a restaurant.

we have both a fall and spring party.  people dress up, but it isn't formal.  we also rent out a club/restaurant thing.
Let me show you Derelicte. It is a fashion, a way of life inspired by the very homeless, the vagrants, the crack whores that make this wonderful city so unique.

not really.  dress up doesn't mean a suit.  dress up means wearing something besides jeans and a hoodie.

The official name at a lot of schools is Barrister's Ball.

It still gets called prom.

I wonder how things work at WashU, after all, they are in the Anheuser-Busch hall. I've heard conflicting reports on the status of corporate sponsored boozing...anyone wanna add some perspective?

I swear that I'll apply and probably accept an offer from there if its true that they have open bars at most functions.

/Wow, I sound like a lush.
