I broke my shoulderblade and it was crazy hard to take off and put on warm clothes around my sling.

...So I noticed that snuggies have a built-in pocket in the front and are super easy to slip on and off. I wore a snuggie for a week straight and it didn't have any effect on my grades or the way professors thought of me.

It's all good. Wear what makes you happy and comfortable.

I'm asking because this topic came up at work...I work at a law firm right now and one of the law clerks is a 3L at the same law school I'm about to attend.

When I asked him what he thought of Professor X who I will have for Civil Procedure, he said on the first day of class, one of his friends showed up in a hat, shorts, t-shirt that said "Corona" or something, and flip-flops and Professor X gave the student a condescending look for a second and then said "Oh, so that's how you dress for law school?"

I don't want to be the guy showing up in a tuxedo with a top hat but I also don't want to be the slacker stereotype. What's conservative enough without looking like a d-bag?


To each their own but you should probably not be so worried what others think of you especially with blind grading.

Personally if the professor said that to me I'd have responded with "When you pay me to show up here I'll dress professionally."

Halfway through the second page of a "what to wear" thread and no one has posted an NPH Suit Up photomeme?

Faith in humanity = restored.

You do realize that there are going to be events throughout 1L year where you'll need to wear business casual and business formal, right?

Looks like you're a 1L - your kind is almost equally insufferable, don't kid yourself.

Somewhere in between business casual and shorts/t-shirt.

Pajama pants are popular. Also, don't brush your hair.
