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").

I tend to agree.  I'm not saying don't do it, but it can become "sticky" when things end, especially since the black communities at most schools are really small and incestuous anyway.

I'm dating a girl who just finished her 1L year of law school. We started in the first semester, and it was fine. If you're a particularly needy person who needs to be with your significant other large portions of every week, then hold off. But if you're normal and can stand to only really "see" your SO a few nights a week, you shouldn't have any problem.


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 humbly disagree.

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.

     Just because folks go to LS does not mean they're grown.  LS is kinda like high school all over again-  only this time we're on our own and drive our own cars. Still wit the lockers and still with petty drama.  "ooooh I saw so and so studying with such and such in the library but then he was studing with someone else on friday"   gettheheckoutta here!  Never thought anyone in LS could be needy.  Surely someone in LS would be self-reliant; self-entertainable. The admissions/LSAT process should surely mellow 'em out. Nope.  Was def proven wrong.

I'll be damned if I'd let a bunch of childish law students and their gossip deter me from dating a woman I wanted.

Oh, definitely f*ck what others say.  But it can still be very uncomfortable, annoying, or painful for YOU to have to see this chick every day for the next 2 years if it doesn't work out.  That's a female dog.
