Other Resources

Suit Yourself - SLU LAW Career Closet
Students may struggle with being able to afford and acquire appropriate professional clothing and accessories for interviews, networking events, professional meetings, and internship/work opportunities. This is particularly true in a profession that expects a dress code far different from what students have previously needed. Suit Yourself is a career closet resource at Scott Hall that students can access when the need arises for professional attire. Clothing items are donated and free to students. Open hours will be posted throughout the school year, but if the need arises outside of those times, please contact Dean Self at
