W&M law school banned from hotel

Students at the William & Mary law school may be in danger of running out of places to party in Williamsburg.

After shenanigans at a gathering aptly titled “Fall From Grace” last month, the hotel called the dean to say the law school was no longer welcome in its facilities. That’s according to a email from student leaders quoted by Above The Law.

The beef? Students were “urinating on the bathroom floor, breaking a toilet paper dispenser, knocking over a flower pot, and engaging in inappropriate behavior in the hotel hallways and bathrooms,” the email reads.

It’s nothing new, said the leaders of the Student Bar Association. “This is the third time over the past few years that the law school has been banned from a local facility and the second time in less than seven months,” the message said.

The SBA said it has apologized to the hotel and plans to implement a cash bar rather than an open bar at future events. It also pledges to send away those who show up already drunk.

The apology may have worked. A manager at the hotel tells The Virginia Gazette the law school has not been “unwelcomed.”

  1. Ah, the future leaders of the legal profession! Alcohol tends to bring out the worst of the stereotypical lawyer personality – or perhaps more accurately, simply magnifies what is already present. I remember being on a VSB-sponsored trip to the Dominican Republic about twenty years ago, and was horrified to witness the drunken behavior of at least a third of the attorneys – en masse – at dinners and waiting at the airport for the return trip. Their verbal hostility towards the locals was astounding, and left a number of Dominicans visibly seething in rage. I have great difficulty with the “disease model” of alcoholic behavior; it’s too much in keeping with their general attitude that they are not responsible for their behavior, which itself is a great moral failing.
