I'm at a firm that is "California business casual," and am wondering if I can still wear jeans in the office, or whether I should invest in slacks again.
For the NYC offices, I'm pretty sure it's business professional minus the suit - so you can top it on at a minute's notice for whatever meeting/ interview/ thing that may arise. The hiring lady at a DA's office told me that as prosecutors, we're suppose to look "professional" at all times.
I guess also that since you will be in court most days, there really isn't any time to change into business casual. Once you get back into the office from court, take off the suit unless you're cold or something.
It this accurate guys?
From personal experience, kings makes you suit up everyday. If you can be seen by the public (e.g. someone else's complaining witness walking by), you better be in a full suit. There was a pretty aggressive officewide memo about it last year.
Are females allowed to wear business dresses at Kings? Or are actual suits required for female ADAs in addition to their male counterparts?
Also, besides dressing up requirements, could you talk a bit about the culture at Kings?
Sorry, been 3Loling it this week.
Disclosure, I'm a guy.
In general there's a distinction between going to criminal court cor misdemeanor s (hoyt & s), and going to supreme for felonies (jay st).
Women always had jackets and planned their outfits around the idea they'll have jackets/blazers on. Not full suits but I imagine more business casual.
There was actually a difference of formality whether you'd go to supreme or criminal. I feel for the ladies because for guys it's always suit up. Ive seen times where a woman couldn't go to supreme (to 2nd seat) because she was too "casual".
The culture of the office is amazing, ECAB sucks, but nothing can fix that.
How often are first year ADAs doing ECAB v. arraignments there?
