Among the late night studying, brief writing and competition for clerkships and internships, it’s hard to imagine that love can thrive at law school.But in honor of Valentine’s Day, two married couples who met as students shared their love stories. And boys: I understand that, after such a display, the gentleman caller in question would have felt perfectly justified in assuming he had discharged his romantic overture duties effectively, and would probably at least get a tongue in his mouth within an hour or two. Sure, we may not quite be in the real world either, but I think we’ve progressed far enough that hanging out at the local bar from midnight to two AM and telling slurred stories of that time you tried to fit yourself into the dryer doesn’t really count as romance.
