To Be or Not to Be–A Sexy Attorney (or Librarian)

April 12, 2010 at 7:37 pm Leave a comment

While the topic of appropriate librarian apparel (for conferences, working with the public, working away from the public eye, etc.) has been discussed ad nauseam throughout the years (see below), at least generally we aren’t being given an exhaustive list of how not to dress too sexily for the job, a lecture that attorneys were recently treated to at the Chicago Bar Association.

I’d like to think that as members of a profession that’s made its mission protecting free speech and freedom of expression, we’re a little more open about such things (see: tattooed librarians, etc.) than other professions (my library director has a “if you’re fully clothed, you’re fine” dress code). But still.
