How common are these lockers in law school? How big are they?

Ours are long and skinny. You can't stick a backpack full of casebooks inside--you'd need to empty it first to make it fit. I'm pretty sure most law schools have lockers, it contributes to the feeling of being infantilized (which I'm sure is the school's intention).

I have been in classes at UT Law, and everyone wore jeans and a t-shirt or sweater. Class is like undergrad in terms of formality, at least right before Thanksgiving. You definitely need a nice suit, but not very often will you wear it during the school year.

This is why UT will never be a T14.

Being a skinny fat breh is pretty cool in this respect.
