At a Symposium of Judges, A Debate on the Laws of Fashion

John Schwartz, May 22, 2009 — The New York Times

Lawyers, note well: Briefs may be long, but skirts cannot be brief. Neckties must be sober, not silly. Violate these laws of fashion, and you might incur the wrath of – or perhaps worse, a glassy stare from – the judge.
That is the message from a freewheeling panel discussion among judges this week in Indianapolis.
The satorical discussion was part of a general exchange of views among judges and lawyers during the annual Seventh Circuit Bar Assoiciation meeting, but it’s impact is reverberating far beyond the conference room of the Westin Indianapolis as lawyers around the country join an online gender battle.
