5th District Juvenile Court: How to Dress for Court

General

  • Dress in your nicest clothes.
  • Dress conservatively and, when appropriate, wear good quality clothing.
  • If you have a choice, always dress as well as the other people who may appear in court.
  • Always be neat and clean.
  • Wear only functional jewelry (e.g., rings and wrist watch).
  • Avoid wearing items that may identify a personal association with any group, gang or club.
  • Avoid wearing nose rings, hats, or piercing's.

Courtroom Behavior

  • Be respectful.
  • Avoid being perceived as being silly, cocky, argumentative, bored or defensive.
  • Never chew gum or have related substances in your mouth while testifying. It interferes with clear speech.
  • Show respect to all of the courtroom officials. Be particularly attentive when the Judge is speaking. Listen to what s/he is saying and be prepared to respond, if necessary.
  • If you must address the Court staff, use their respective titles.
    • Addressing the judge: "Your Honor."
    • Addressing the bailiff: "Mr. Bailiff" or "Officer."

The Utah State Courts mission is to provide the people an open, fair, efficient, and independent system for the advancement of justice under the law.
