Reading, Writing, and Fashion? Students Go Head-to-Head with What Not to Wear
Law and fashion collided on the runway at the College of Law’s “What Not to Wear” event held October 21, 2010. The Student Bar Association and the Center for Professional Development co-sponsored the entertaining event designed to help those future lawyers struggling with questions about appropriate dress for the workplace—be it the office or the courtroom. Fellow students showcased looks from suitable to a more “traditional” environment to outfits befitting a business casual outing. They were reviewed by fellow classmates and a panel of judges: Anne B. Flottman ’01 of the law firm Wood & Lamping; Joshua Crabtree ‘03 of the Children’s Law Center, Inc.; Emily E. Walters ‘09, law clerk to the Honorable J.R. Schrand of the Boone Circuit Court; and Danielle Battaglia of the Tom James Company, a custom clothing retailer. Each panelist provided insightful commentary and discussion regarding the appropriateness of each outfit and answered thoughtful questions from audience members about the importance of dress and making a great impression.
