Class Attire

Business Casual

Law Firm Etiquette & Attire

Dress business or very dressy business casual (no jeans, shorts, summer dresses, flip lops, risque clothing, or beach attire). Err on the side of dressier and conservative.  A suit, a long sleeved shirt and tie is acceptable.  Dark slacks and a blouse is appropriate for women.  Wear comfortable shoes as you may be walking to lunch and firms.  This is not the best time to try out a new pair of stilettos. (Dress shoes are great).  Keep in mind, many attorneys with whom you meet will be in suits.  

Bring government-issued photo identification.  Due to the sensitivity of the information they handle, firms and legal departments are careful about who is allowed access.  As such, guests may be asked to produce identification upon entry.

Lastly, it's great form to have a few well-thought-out questions before visiting.  You may prepare by researching the firm or company via the internet prior to your visit.  

Parking During Summer Experience

Participants may park in the student parking lot on Larned, located on the school’s north side. There is no charge for guests parking in this lot.
