Is there a dress code for Teen Court?
The courtroom is a formal and serious place, commanding respect from all who participate in the proceedings. The following rules are to be observed:
  • No caps or hats
  • No tank tops, midriffs, or halter tops
  • No T-shirts or clothing with obscene or profane language or illustrations
  • No torn clothing
  • No shorts
  • No sunglasses
  • No gang related clothing

Teen Court also prohibits the use of gum or tobacco products, eating, drinking, or the use of obscene or profane language or signs. The impression a defendant makes on a jury is important. A good attitude and positive appearance will leave a positive impression.

Teen Court reserves the right to refuse to hear a case from those persons who fail to abide by the outlined dress code. Jurors are held to the same standards as defendants.
