Games (Good) Law Students Play
Inspired by a conversation with a fellow member of Covert Study Group, I thought it would be interesting to examine two real life situations that can be resolved in many ways: the emotional way, the cooperative way, and . . . the Law School Way. The best Law School approved solution to the following situations is the one that makes you feel like a bigger Law Dork. Good luck.
The woman cleans the bathrooms has walked in on me at least three times. I don't know why she never knocks. But even that I could let slide. Today, she came in while I was in the shower to clean the bathroom. I know I should be more understanding, but the fact that she's already seen me half-naked once really bothers me. I'm going to ask the people in charge if there is a policy about knocking and if there's not, suggest they implement one.
My daughter and her roommate have gotten along fine all year, but now a huge divide has occurred that they are trying to figure out. Room temperature! My daughter grew up in an old New England farmhouse and had no heat in her bedroom. In fact, we keep the house at 62 when we are home in the day and 58 at night. Cool, but we like it, and wear big sweaters. My daughter's roommate wants to keep the room at 76, sweltering by our standards.(N.B.-- Both of these are real situations, taken from the words of those who expressed them, but edited.)
