seriously, he can walk into a job interview or a courtroom any minute.

and this is in California, not NY. so, go figure.


My section had a kid like that. Within just one day, he was known as "that guy" for being such a loser and a tool. I wonder what his thought process was? I just can't imagine having so little social sense as to think wearing a suit to class on a daily basis would be a good idea.



"Within just one day"?

our "that guy" beats yours.
he is now a 2L.
and no one has ever seen him without a suit and tie.

seriously, this is California. i only remember one law professor that wears a suit and tie, and his suits are the casual brown ones with patterns.

Thank you.

In the northeast, there are only a few months a year when I'd think it odd to wear a suit without real need. I mean, seriously, this place is cold.

i think business-formal dress code would be a deal-breaker for me.


You know, you could just carry your jacket till you get to work.
Pain in the ass.

Also, firms do pay you enough where you COULD take a cab every day if that's how you wanted to spend your money.
It's not.

Or, you could do what a lot of smart lawyers do and live within walking distance of work.
I'd rather not live in the city.
