Delhi’s Shahdara Bar Association (SBA) prescribed a new dress code for law interns to distinguish them from practicing lawyers at the Karkardooma courts.

The committee members unanimously gave their assent to introduce new dress code for interns, white shirt and blue coat and trousers, according to a notification dated November 24. 

The concern was expressed over confusion regarding interns donning black courts in courts, causing it difficult to “differentiate between advocates and interns”. To resolve this issue the interns now have been mandate to follow the dress code of wear white shirt, blue coat and trousers.

The released notification reads, “All the member of SBA Regd. are hereby informed that the interns are appearing in the courts wearing black coats and many times it is difficult to differentiate between the advocates and the interns. It is unanimously decided by the executive committee that there shall be a dress code for the interns ie white shirt and blue coat and trousers,” 

Advocates have been advised by the SBA to ensure that their interns follow the new dress code beginning on December 1. 

The notification specifies that interns will not be permitted to appear in court if they do not adhere with the same.
