The walk of shame. The stride of pride. Whatever you call it, word in Gerwirz is it’s happening more and more.
Don’t worry, 1Ls, I’m not writing to judge you. I know law school goggles have set in, and I agree that your classmate in the sweatpants and highlighter-stained shirt has never looked more appealing. You’ve been working hard these last few months; you deserve someone to share your triumphs, tribulations, and outrageously small bed with. But beware, Gewirz residents, if you don’t follow the time-tested rules of dormcest you won’t have anything left to tell the bar, they’ll already know all about your character and fitness…
- DO obtain written consent. I don’t care if it’s not in the statute of frauds, a 1L needs to protect themselves.
- DON’T talk about it afterwards. No one needs to know about the inadequacy of your last partner’s consideration…
- DON’T pillow talk about your memo. It’s both uninteresting and an honor code violation.
- DO like Palsgraf and make that package explode.
Go forth and multiply, little 1Ls.
