Nearly half of law school students in a study by Kaplan Test Prep report seeing content posted by friends on Facebook that’s illegal. And almost half of the offenders were also law students.
The offenders were not necessarily involved in significant violations, however. For example, illegal content could include smoking a cuban cigar, an illegal that most officials wouldn’t even think about pursuing. So does this mean that law students are a bunch of criminals? While I’d like to suggest that, the reality is that most of the illegal acts are pretty minor.
In other words the study didn’t find anything very shocking. Yes, law students may occasionally involve themselves in some form of public intoxication, or other illegal act, however most aren’t going around murdering people and posting photos of the crime scene on Facebook.
