Sorry if this thread is going on somewhere else but it seems to be of discussion on several boards. Should you date in law school?  Is there time for a relationship?  Who is hunting who (sisters after the brothers or brothers after the sisters)?  Anyone care to share their stories?

1. Why not?
2. ummm...24 hours in a day and you have weekends off. If you don't have time in law school, you sure as hell won't have time when you're working.
3. ehhh...not enough info to answer
4. My SO and I met in undergrad. Decided sophomore yeaer to go to the same law school. Got into the same law school. Live together in law school and are having a great time.

Wow! Kudos to you guys! and in regards to #2. You are the first person I have heard that said you actually get weekends off in law school...lol...(I will be a 1L in the fall so I am assuming you are not referring to this group of people).

Did a long distance relationship, it tanked.  Dated indiscriminately, worked alright.  Dated long distance again, working out well.  No reason you can't see people 1L year.  You're going to law school, not a monastery.  Lighten up.

cui bono?

LMAO.  this question keeps on being asked every cycle is seems (if u did a search like 10 things will pop up).  The attitude of PLS II is  dating as a release.  I say, date in ur second semester if u must.  1L, 1st semester hell no.  I have a strong no dating policy in my particular ls.  Neighboring schools... fine.  Long distance...fine.  But have to veto the whole dating in your particular school.  Break up, then that's one person that u may think u have to avoid.  Unnecessary potential drama.  Not a good look.   Anything that causes u drama in ls needs to be dropped.

Dating in your school is a bad look.  Dating in your university is slightly better if it's large.  I did the dating within the university jump-off second semester; again, not a good look.  But dating long distance or someone who ain't at the school is fine.

I do too. I don't see why two adults can't have a romantic relationship just cause they go to school together. Just be grown about it and it's fine.

The problem isn't having the relationship.  The problem is still attending that same school and moving in the same circles when the relationship ends (even if it ends on "good terms").
