7 Christmas movie characters as the people you meet in law school
We all know and love these Christmas classics, but how many of these law students do you know and love?
Law school might just be its own movie – you start to not really know what you’re getting yourself into, but you buckle up and hope for the best time.
With the classic Christmas movies returning to our TV screens, how many of these characters do you recognize in your law school?
1. Kevin McCallister, Alone at home
When you first met Kevin, you weren’t too sure they’d be able to cope with law school. They’re a lot of fun and you would definitely invite them out anytime, but they didn’t exactly seem to understand that law school isn’t exactly fun and fun. As you get to know them, you realize that they have an uncanny ability to thrive under pressure and achieve surprisingly good results.
2. Prime Minister, Love in fact
The Prime Minister is a charming law student who speaks quietly and always seems to know how to answer any question with ease. Still unperturbed, they have already put down their TC (which probably explains why they are so calm).
3. Friend Hobbs, Elf
Buddy is our class clown and he’s definitely the one you can count on to keep things light. Still, you don’t really want to do a group project with them because they just look like a big kid who kind of landed in law school.

4. Ebenezer Scrooge, A Christmas Carol
While you and your classmates may decide to go to a social night or two or even just go to the pub, you certainly won’t see Ebenezer Scrooge there. Scrooge is too busy looking for the next reading list or reserving his seat in the front row of the conference room. Any invitation to do something fun will definitely be greeted with a “bah humbug” from them.
5. Mr. and Mrs. McCallister, Home Alone 2: Lost in New York
Just like the parents of the second part of the Alone at home series, you are surprised at how forgetful these students are despite having another year. You’ll see them at the start and end of the year, but no one really seems to see them at conferences or seminars throughout the year. Somehow they get away with it and end with a decent grade.
6. Cindy-Lou Qui, How the Grinch stole Christmas
The ultimate law school sweetheart. Cindy-Lou is always willing to send a copy of her notes to anyone who asks (even if it’s the first time you’ve spoken to her). They plan to make the world a better place by using the law, and you really believe in them.
7. Mrs. Weasley, The Harry potter Series
They are the personal tutor at law school that everyone wants as a surrogate. They will take you under their wing and will be happy to help you with your personal issues as well. But Ms. Weasley can also be tough and won’t hesitate to tell on someone if they’ve gone over the line.
As you settle in to enjoy these classics this Christmas, let us know in the comments below what other characters remind you of your law school mates.
