One month from now, and I’ll don a cap and gown, walk on stage, and receive my law degree (or Juris Doctorate for the smug bastards reading this). I’ll walk off stage. Law school is a lot of things: stressful, a drain on your credit, a delay of the inevitable (for some); but, looking back from now, I enjoyed it. Yea, the teaching method is outdated. And, ok, I’d even agree that 100k in debt is not a fair price for the education you receive in return. But, if there was no law school, what the fuck else would the thousands of socially retarded, obsessive-compulsive, immature lawyer-birds do.
Law school is our nest, where, everyday 400 some-odd individuals clamor for the approval of their professor, where sneers are sardonic grins, where comebacks, putdowns, your-momma jokes, evolve into snarky, venomous legal jargon, just constant words shrieking out of our bills like “reasonable” or “slippery-slope”. Where else, but law school.
