    Lindsay Lohan has to give her alcohol education a fair shot, a judge ordered yesterday.

    The "Mean Girls" starlet has been "in compliance" with her DUI probation but needs to start taking her alcohol classes more seriously if she plans to complete the mandatory course, a Los Angeles court judge said yesterday, according to

    "I am going to order [that] this has to be done," Judge Marsha Revel said in L.A. Superior Court.

    Lohan, 23, who didn't appear in court for the hearing, has to start "attending every single week" to fulfill the mandatory six months of education by the judge's deadline of July 15, 2010.

    "This has to be a top priority whether she has a job somewhere else or doesn't or something else comes up," Revel said. "This has to be done once a week." 

    Her next hearing is on Feb. 18.

    The actress was granted a year extention on her probation after she was ordered to complete an 18-month substance abuse program in the wake of her 2007 DUI charge but failed to complete more than half of the courses. 

    Lohan just returned from a week in India where she was making a BBC documentary on human trafficking.

    "Right now, the other things will take second place, and this will take first place," Revel said.
