Block on Trump's Asylum Ban Upheld by Supreme Court
Relationships with lawyers aren't always the easiest. We've got big personalities, demanding jobs, crippling student debt -- and those are just the good parts.
But being a lawyer (or law student) doesn't need to mean being alone. To help you find someone to love -- and to make it work once you've found them -- here are our top relationship tips, from the FindLaw archives.
Sure, you could look for love at a bar, or at work, or among friends. But you can also look for the love of your life on your phone. There are plenty of apps that can help you swipe your way to your life partner -- or just find a quick date.
If you're not an app person, you might find someone to fall for on the job. But work relationships, we all know, come with some pitfalls. If you've got eyes for the esquire down the hall, should you take a risk and ask them out?
If dating coworkers can raise some tricky issues, dating former clients can raise even more. But it's not necessarily forbidden. While the ABA Model Rules prevent sexual relationships with current clients, unless the romantic relationship preexisted the attorney-client one, things are more complicated once representation ends.
Some lawyers have a unique way of flirting. For example, there are the law students who ask for a date with the three-page dating contract, boilerplate language about severability included. If that sounds like you, don't worry too much. There are plenty of people out there who will find your Blue Booking romantic.
You may be looking for a ring, some kids, and a picket fence, but should you look for another attorney to take down the aisle?
Hey, if you can't land a finance or even a date, that doesn't mean you're destined to be unloved. You could always get a dog.
