Does anybody actually like law school?

Postby smartin » Tue May 04, 2010 4:10 pm

I've never met anyone who actually *likes* law school. I've met lawyers who like practicing, but shiver when remembering those three years. Anyone out there on the world wide webs willing to admit that he/she actually enjoys it?

I love law school, except for the exam part at the end which I hate.

I have talked to countless attorneys and judges who say they enjoyed it. I had lunch with about six attorneys one time, and I think every other one said, "I hated it" and then the next person said, "I loved it" and so on and so forth.

I've had completely the opposite experience. Everyone I've ever met who went to law school said it was the best three years of their life but hates being a lawyer.

I'm excited about it and totally stuffing my head in the sand about the intense, oppressive, constant anxiety that is going to come with my first few years of associate-hood and indebtedness.

For the most part, I like it.

I love it.

I think I appreciate it more after having been out of school for awhile and deciding to go back. There are very few, if any, motivation issues.

I always say that I liked being a law student, but didn't like law school itself. All my good memories from law school revolve around things I did with my classmates and friends outside the classroom, whereas all my bad memories are of classes, finals, the bar exam and loans--and subciting.

In any case, even if I'd liked law school, it still wouldn't be the slightest bit relevant to my current practice.

Most people I have spoken to say they love it.
