Students at an American law school have told their paranoid Dean that just because they've organised a little bit of boozing fun, it does not mean they will be "drinking like a Republican National Convention".

Above the Law reports that students at the Indiana University Mauer School of Law received an email from their Dean after it came to his attention that they had organised a bar crawl.

In the email, the Dean applauded "the idea of having fun" but said they felt the need to send the warning given the time of year and the amount of time he has recently spent personally with students who have been arrested for "alcohol related incidents and resultant 'character and fitness' problems".

The Dean continued by making threats to those who dared to play up: "I should also mention that those of you with scholarships will lose them if you get into any disciplinary problems."

After taking the joy out of what the students hoped would be a good time before exams, the Dean was nice enough to finish the email by saying "have a good time and a good weekend".

One student who was particularly unimpressed with the email said that if they're capable of being accepted to law school, they are capable of controlling their behaviour while out drinking.

"Just because we are going out in an organised manner doesn't mean we are automatically going to be drinking like a Republican National Convention," the student told Above the Law.
