Courtroom Attire

In-person and Video Courtroom Attire

Courtroom attire should be restrained and appropriate to the dignity of the United States Bankruptcy Court. For all lawyers, experts, and witnesses appearing in the capacity of an officer or other business representative, this means professional attire. Professional attire for men is a suit or blazer/jacket and tie. Professional attire for women is a suit, blazer/jacket, conservative dress, or comparable professional attire. See also District Court Rule AT-5(b). Individual debtors and parties in interest should dress in a presentable manner appropriate to their means. All should dress for video hearings in the same manner as in the courtroom.
