Court Attire

WhatToWearThis week students in the 1L or Principles course will be visiting the Dallas County Criminal Courthouse for the first time. We require that all the students dress in business attire. The young men are required to wear a collared dress shirt with a tie, dress pants (slacks), belt and dress shoes. A sports coat or suit are optional.

Young ladies are expected to dress professionally. Skirts should rest right at the knee and high heels are not appropriate. Since at times, there is a lot of walking, we recommend that they wear flats. Collared and sleeved blouses are preferred and should not reveal cleavage. The ladies have a bit more latitude in the type of combinations they can wear within this dress code.

The samples in the photo above offer a good range of what is appropriate to wear to court. Here is a link to a Google search with additional photos for ideas.

We understand that school clothes can be expensive. Many times students can find great “court clothes” at a local thrift store like the Salvation Army or Goodwill for just a few dollars.
