Have you ever looked into your closet and lamented that you have nothing to wear?

That’s the situation some law students face as they outfit themselves for job interviews, summer legal internships or moot court competitions. Dressing professionally can be half the battle, but stretched-tight student budgets often have little room for clothes shopping.

It’s a problem that the School of Law and some Western New York jurists are tackling on a practical level with the opening of the school’s new Career Closet – racks of ready-to-wear professional clothing, available to any law student who needs them.

“This is something we’ve dreamed about for a long time,” says Lisa M. Patterson, associate dean for career services, who is organizing the effort in O’Brian Hall with the help of the UB Law Alumni Association. “Many of our students are working to make ends meet while they’re here, and we have many students who are the first professional or the first lawyer in their family. We want to be able to give them something they would otherwise have to purchase, but it’s also modeling for them what is appropriate attire for a lawyer.”
