Fresh pig's blood, anyone

As the 1Ls start to rumble about law school prom (which, hey SBA, it'd be great if you'd actually announe that since it's less than 3 weeks away!) the inherent ridiculousness of the whole thing is finally sinking in. I've heard of people ordering corsages. I've heard of people booking hotel rooms. I've heard of 80s thrift store dresses so fabulous they would make Cyndi Lauper proud. And I think it's all hilariously wonderful.

But how do you explain law prom to non-law school students? At first, I thought it would be a hard feat to make the entire thing sound enticing to a guy:

"So, um, do you wanna go to law school prom with me? We can hang out all night with a bunch of up-tight, type A personalities who will invariably have way too much to drink, cause a bunch of drama, and look really silly while doing it. You'll have to dress up, and btw, there's going to be dancing involved."

and then I realized the magic words that I was forgetting..."there's an open bar."

The 'open bar' is more theoretical than actual. The bartenders work veeeeery sloowly and it's deliberately understaffed. When you finally do get a drink, it's mostly water.

Law school prom is pointless. You could have way more fun simply going out on the town with friends.

{I'm a 2L who went as a 1L. Not a mistake I'll be repeating.]

If you want to convince a non-law-school-guy to go, just call it by its official title. “casino night” and not “law school prom.” As for the previously mentioned problem, that is easily rectified, I ordered double Grey Goose Martinis straight up two at a time, but the lines did Suck.

It might turn out to be more fun than you thought it would be... or at least mine did.
