Dressing and Grooming Tips for Your Courtroom Appearances
Expect your appearance to play a role in court proceedings. Ideally, only the facts of the case and the available evidence should matter. However, the world has conditioned people to judge others based on their appearance, even if subconsciously. Therefore, ensure that your dressing and grooming will project an image that can strengthen your case.
Below are some helpful tips to use.
Ensure all aspects of your attire are comfortable. Court sessions can sometimes be lengthy. Uncomfortable attire might leave you fidgety before the case ends. The judge or jury might misread signs of your discomfort and assume you are lying during your testimony. Your nervousness can also distract people from the proceedings.
