What do most students wear in Law school?
« on: March 18, 2006, 11:40:52 AM »
Someone posted a similar question on the pre-law board, but I thought it could best be answered here. So, how do most law students dress?

Most law students dress the way they would in undergrad (at least where I got to school).  Not as slutty, though.  Suits on OCI or oral argument days.

Yes; dress comfortably unless there's a specific reason why you have to be dressed up (interview, oral argument, etc).

Suits, including pantyhose and full makeup or expected everyday.  ;)

Jeans and t's are definitely ok.  I'd say it's the barest step up from undergrad; you don't usually see people rolling into class in sweats or pjs (common at my ug, anyway) but it's very casual.

Thanks. I'll be PT and working FT. Not sure what my work attire will be, but it will be nice to be comfortable in LS classes (at least in regards to what I wear).

i dont know what the hell these people are smokin on these boards, but everyone skanks it up at my school. sweats and sweatshirts are the way to go. I mean, seriously, you've been workin hard all night to prepare for class the next day, when u wake up, u dont wanna think about what the heck should i wear.
