I think the way alcohol is treated in law school is outrageous. (At least how it was at my school.) On one hand, we had administrators telling us how prevalent addiction is among lawyers and how we have to watch out for it. But on the other hand, we had endless school-sponsored events packed with alcohol. Plenty of drinking outside those events too. There is a definite culture of “study hard, party hard” that I hope eventually changes.

I’m a lawyer and teacher from North Carolina. I write about sobriety, mental health, running, and more. Buy me a “coffee” at ko-fi.com/benyaclark.
