What Do Law Students and Puppies Have in Common?
Nothing. Which doesn't mean the former, specifically 1Ls, can't learn some valuable lessons from the latter, according to Neetal Parekh's post on the Greedy Associates blog this morning.
Parekh doesn't explicitly suggest learning not to pee on the rug, but distills canine wisdom for baby law schoolers into six nuggets. My favorite:
3. Be able to fall asleep anywhere. You may soon find that a well-timed 15 minute nap on a library desk can be sweeter than your favorite double fudge sundae. Being able to sleep when you have time to will make you a much happier (and more-agreeable) 1L. Know when to schedule a 'last call' for caffeinated beverages so you can get a decent snooze.
Just don't let that habit stay with you if you manage to snag a summer associate position.
