Law School Nightmares (Literally)!

Postby abudaba » Fri Sep 17, 2010 12:23 am

So, in the past I've rarely had dreams and/or nightmares, but since school started I've been having law school related dreams all the time.

Most recently I woke up in a cold sweat, went to the bathroom (not in my bed - it wasnt that bad), and realized after laying down to go back to sleep that I had been half awake/asleep in an intense inner dialogue about mens rea.

Frankly I cant say I'm surprised since school takes up so much time now. Wondering if anyone else has taken the law with them into dreamland?

I have law school dreams on occasion, but they don't involve sweating, sleepwalking, or "inner dialogue[s]." You might want to see a doctor.

In UG I once had a really big ethics test that i had been studying for the entire week. After the test, i went out got really drunk and came home and went to bed (or so i thought). When i woke up, my girlfriend told me how when i was asleep i was giving her a lecture on utilitarianism and moral relativism for about 2 hours...icant imagine the shit ill say after my first law school exams.

just got back from the doctor.

he said if I'm having trouble explaining Mens Rea backward and forward in my sleep I should just drop out of LS.

Thanks for the advice :roll:

I mean it sounds like you don't sleep correctly. Sweating, walking around, and talking is not normal. Freak.

The Redbook suggests your title is misleading because the nightmare was more figurative than literal.
