Which 'Suits' Character Are You?

By Tabitha McDonald

Every law student has watched Suits – and if you say you haven’t, I don’t believe you. In my first year, a lecturer asked us to go around the class and share why we had chosen this degree. She got to approximately the fourth student before turning to the entire class and asking, ‘how many of you chose law because of Suits?’


Another student piped up ‘I chose it because of Legally Blonde.’ 


No one can deny that the media we consume plays a significant role in shaping our interests. Our interests then go on to shape our passions, and so on, until a room full of first years find themselves twiddling their thumbs, wondering when they get to start dating Meghan Markle and praying they develop late-onset photographic memory. 


But what separates a Louis Litt from a Harvey Spector? A Mike Ross from a Rachel Zane? Is there any difference at all? Or at the end of the day, is every law student just another boring old suit?

Mostly A’s – Harvey

Congrats! You are a suave gentleman with a boyish charm. While you haven’t disappointed your mother, the same can’t be said for the other women in your life. Keep up the great work Harvey – your emotional range will develop eventually.


Mostly B’s – Donna

If self-love was an illness, you would be a terminal case! You do things your way or the highway. Sometimes this comes off as abrasive, but chin up Donna, abrasive is the new black.


Mostly C’s – Jessica

You are a Jessica!  While you like a loyal group of friends, you also know how to make it on your own. You’re a girl boss and you don’t care who knows it! Keep gaslight gatekeeping your way to the top.



Mostly D’s – Louis

While you may not be ‘literally him’ you’re literally a superstar at what you do! Stay in your lane and don’t let the moves of others distract you. While socialising may not be your greatest strength, you pull through for your friends when it matters.



Mostly E’s – Rachel

Your work ethic is insane! While you may not be the best at work-life balance, your commitment to achieving your goals and aspirations is admirable. Cut out more time for yourself to enjoy the things you love. Like seriously. Please go home. Your friends are worried.


Mostly F’s – Mike

You’re a Mike, and people hate you because they ain’t you! You succeed in almost anything you undertake with low effort, and honestly, it’s bloody annoying. Work on trying to find joy in activities you aren’t naturally good at, and you might learn a thing or two.
