You may either still be in law school or you're about ready to graduate, or you've graduated, and you've decided you want to seek a summer associate law position. Hello. I'm Robert Todd, and I'm here to answer the question 'How to Dress For a Summer Associate Law Interview'. Well one of the first things you want to do is take a look at the law firm that you are apply to. How do they dress? What is their normal, customary dress? When they're going to court, do they dress one way? When they're having a casual day, how do they dress? You probably don't want to dress in a casual fashion, even if they're having a casual day, because you'll want to look like you'll fit in. And you want to look like you'll fit in on, perhaps, one of the more conservative days. So, generally speaking, you want to wear a dark color. A suit, whether you're a man or a woman. A white shirt or a white blouse, buttoned down. If you're a man, a tie. If you're a woman, you want to make sure the blouse is buttoned to the top. And you want to be as conservative as possible, because again, you want to look like you fit in. Even though many, many lawyers can be construed as thinking liberally, when it comes to dress, they still dress conservatively, because when you appear in court, it's generally accepted behavior to have conservative attire. I'm Robert Todd, and thank you for watching.
