Looking the Part

We have all heard the saying “when you look good, you feel good” and this is especially true in a courtroom setting. Mock trials take place in courtroom settings and members certainly show up looking their best.

Common courtroom attire includes suits, dress shirts, ties, dress shoes, blazers, dresses, and more. For some students, acquiring these items can be a difficult process. Finding business clothes can be time-consuming, expensive, and difficult to do.

Thankfully, students at the University of Tennessee are benefitted by the university’s program known as Smokey’s Closet.

“Smokey’s Closet is an initiative coordinated by the Center for Career Development, the Student Government Association and the Office of Student Disability Services.”

Smokey’s Closet is an initiative that serves to provide students with professional business attire to support them in their professional endeavors. This opportunity occurs in the fall but Smokey’s Closet is available to assist students year round by appointment.

Students can email smokeyscloset@utk.edu to schedule appointments to receive free professional clothing.

Tennessee Mock Trial hosts members of a diverse background. We are thrilled to be able to connect with this university initiative to promote the success of our members in and out of the courtroom.

It’s not hard to feel your best when you have so many great opportunities to look your best and be supported here on Rocky Top!
