Most law students only hang out with other law students. You will understand why when you start, but in short other people don't like law students and law students feel stressed by other people. During the week you will spend the vast majority of your time in class or reading for class, particularly at the beginning before you get into the grove of skimming cases. Thus on the weekends, you normally hang our with classmates since you don't know anyone else.
Some people have non-law school friends and say it helps with their sanity. They meet these people at various activities on campus, like going to the gym. Also, Tell Grad Its Fridays is dollar beers at the Big Red Barn where only grad students may go. You could meet other grad students there.
Expect the vast majority of your social network to be law students, since you will readily know a lot of them.
Why are law students disliked?
