Acceptable Attire

There is no formal dress code, but you are in a courthouse and you must dress appropriately for the seriousness of the proceedings.

  • Clothing that is neat, clean, comfortable and not revealing.
  • Clothing worn for an office job or for a job interview.
  • Slacks and a shirt with a collar for men.
  • Dress, skirt or slacks and a blouse for women.
Not Acceptable
  • Uniforms (e.g., law enforcement, military, medical, work, etc., except when worn for religious reasons).
  • Employer badges or work name tags.
  • T-shirts with logos, graphic T-shirts (T-shirts with words or pictures), or undershirts worn as the top layer of clothing.
  • Beach or athletic wear.
  • Abbreviated clothing (for example, shorts, cut-offs, muscle shirts, halter or tank tops, bare midriffs, exposed undergarments, etc.).
  • See-through clothing.
  • Hats (except when worn for religious reasons).

Also Consider
Dressing in clothing that is not acceptable or that causes disruption to court proceedings may result in an extension of your service term or another sanction. You may spend time in a jury deliberation room, so please do not wear strong fragrances. The courthouse may be chilly – bring a sweater or jacket.
