The next thing you know, you’ll be sitting down at a computer in your dorm room to learn how to design a new Reddit uniform.
And while you’re learning, your roommate might be working out with a trainer.
What could go wrong?
The next time someone comes over to your room to ask what you’re doing, ask them how many packs they’ve got.
“There are so many,” says student Josh Miller, who will graduate with a degree in law and public policy.
“They just start telling you about the packs.
You’re like, ‘That’s not really necessary.'”
That’s exactly what happened to Miller when he learned the Reddit law school uniform was going for $50 each.
“I was like, what are you talking about?
I have my own personal business, so I need to have something to show to my friends,” he said.
So he bought a pack, put it on, and got ready for his first class.
The next day, he had to sit through a two-hour lecture from a professor who told him how to dress appropriately for the job.
“We are not here to tell you how to live your life.
This is a class about how to be prepared for a legal profession.
And we are not going to be teaching you how not to be a legal professional,” he told him.
Miller’s lesson, in fact, came during a time of increasing scrutiny from lawmakers and the courts.
Reddit, a popular online community where users can discuss any topic in a safe and civil manner, has been embroiled in an unprecedented legal battle with the government.
In November, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in favor of Reddit, saying the social network’s business model is too valuable to allow the company to violate its users’ privacy.
That decision led Reddit to begin banning users for engaging in illegal activity.
It also set a new precedent for other businesses: If a company can’t get away with the conduct it engages in, it can’t operate at all.
The court also ruled that the social media site could only regulate the behavior of its users and not the content of their posts.
With this ruling, Reddit was allowed to regulate the content on its site, as long as the company kept the content free of “speech or conduct that is not otherwise prohibited by law.”
The company has also set up a legal defense fund, which provides legal help to people facing lawsuits.
But Miller said the funding has been less than adequate for him.
“For the first year I had this fund, I had to make a down payment on a car, rent a place to live, and pay $2,000 in tuition fees to be on the court,” he says.
“So when you get $50 a pack from Reddit, that’s a pretty big deal.”
While Miller’s situation was a relatively rare one, it isn’t the first time someone has gone to Reddit for guidance on how to wear their law school robes.
The site is also the subject of a lawsuit from an Illinois woman who says she was fired for wearing a Reddit uniform to work.
In a statement, Reddit said it respects people’s “right to choose how to present themselves in a workplace and that this is an open forum for everyone to share their thoughts and ideas.”
“As a community, we believe in free speech and the freedom to disagree, but we recognize that the right to be judged on their content, not their attire, is a foundational principle,” the company said.
“As we continue to evolve, we will continue to be sensitive to people’s personal opinions and beliefs, including those related to attire, and will continue making changes to accommodate this.”
