Women lawyers dating

Of course, I didn't obsess that much about my grades either and I had a job secured before the start of my second year (the Corps - no nasty civilian law for me). Many of my classmates were coddled, debt-ridden, crybabies who still haven't figured out the law.

When I went to law school, I thought my degree in chemistry and five years working as an environmental chemist would actually help me in the only area of law I was remotely interested in practicing in--environmental law.
My impression was that whatever lightweight degree they did before law school had never shown them what it meant to work hard.I never trusted that there was a solid core to law, so I don't know what the fundamental limits are to someone for whom law is a practice and discipline.
