Court Attire – Guidelines

Dear Members of the KL Bar,

The KL Bar’s Civil Practice Committee had in recent months, received fresh complaints from senior members of the Bar and the Bench, of lawyers being inappropriately dressed for court (examples given include, red shoes, slippers, lycra leggings).

Members are requested to be mindful of and to adhere to the Bar Council’s Rulings on Dress Code so as to ensure professional decorum, decency and respect.

A pictorial chart of the said Bar Council’s Rulings may be viewed here.
