After listening to me whine about how tough law school was, my sister decided to avoid law school like plague. Avoiding the institution was easy for until she met her current boyfriend who is a 3L at Nova Law School in Plantation, Florida. She is going to be her beau’s date to the upcoming Barrister’s Ball. This gala is a tradition of all law schools that I know of where the law students cut loose and break out the prom-wear. Barrister’s Ball really is the law student’s prom. I went every year when I was in law school. You know me, I jump at any excuse to get dressed up. My sister and I went prom shopping for a law school prom dress. We found a few amazing prom dresses at Nordstrom.
