Attire for Federal Court Externship
« on: January 01, 2008, 10:52:33 PM »
I have an externship this semester working about 25 hours a week (about 3 full days.) I cant for the life of me remember what they were wearing. Is it suits everyday? I am a female and only have about 4 suits. Any thoughts?

I had to wear a suit to my federal court externship every day that the judge had anything on calendar, which was most every day.

I always wore business casual dress, which was overdressed compared to my particular judge.

Wear business attire unless they say that business casual is acceptable. Or you could call and ask. Might work better than asking on an internet chat board.

Just a thought.

Yes, it never comes off as dumb to ask this question of your employer prior to starting.

But when in doubt dress in business attire.

You could always go with this look from a former extern for a federal judge:

Frightening.

Check out the pre-kidnapping/assault charge picture. I guess felonies are tough on the skin.

The real question is whether she will get a good reference from her Judge for OCI.
