I am of similar mind like ttcolb on this one — the ick factor is dimmed by the fact it takes place in law school. After all, in terms of age gap and uneven power dynamics involved, would things be all that different if instead of law student and professor, it was a 24-year old intern in a romance with a 35 year old CEO at Ginormous Corp.? (Hello, “Boyfriend”!)
Three of my peers were more or less openly involved with professors during my law school days, although I do believe all the relationships started after their respective courses had been completed. Not saying its a good thing, but I am unaware of any regrettable results, either. And candidly, if my criminal procedure professor had been like-minded…never mind.
