When “I’m going to law school”= “here’s free legal advice”

Please tell me I’m not the only one this happens to. I’d say about 60% of the time someone finds out I’m going to law school, I get asked to give legal advice.

No, just no. Everyone stop.

1. You don’t want my legal advice. I’m not a lawyer and I haven’t even started law classes.

2. Guess what? I don’t have your state law memorized. I just don’t.

I don’t know why people assume I know laws when I haven’t been to law school and now I can’t help but wonder if nurses or doctors, etc. feel the same way when people find out they are going to their respective school. Either way, I’m 20, I’m not a lawyer, and I don’t know this state’s laws. If you need a decent lawyer, I could help but PLEASE stop asking for my “professional legal advice”.
