So one of your friends has decided to be that person who organises a law-themed party, because you know, you can never be too extra about the fact you’re a law student. While everyone turns up in a suit and pretends they didn’t have time for a change of clothing after their paralegal shift, you’re going to be a tad more adventurous.

 

1. Judge

*Bonus points if it's Judge Judy.

 

2. Assault and Battery

Works best as a couple costume. Think a salt shaker and a lithium battery.

 

3. Prisoner

Self-explanatory and easy if you already own a striped t-shirt or anything orange.

 

4. Harvey Dent/Two-Face

Harvey Dent makes the list due to his District Attorney credentials. You either die a hero, or study long enough to see yourself become a lawyer.

 

5. Police Officer

It’s not a (costume) party unless there’s at least one police officer present.

 

6. Hung Juror 

 This involves a sign that says ‘Juror’ and either a noose or speedos. You decide. See image for inspiration.

 

7. The snail from Donoghue v Stevenson

Commitment props to you if you only drink ginger beer that night.

 

8. Scales of Justice

Pros: More places to put your drinks

Cons: No free hands to hold them.

 

9. Elle Woods

No law themed costume party would be complete without Elle Woods.

 

10. Captain Reasonable Person

What would a reasonable person do in the circumstances? What would a reasonable person wear to the party? Captain Reasonable is bound to know!

 

11. Miss Demeanour

Channelling ‘misconduct,’ ‘misrepresentation’ and ‘mistrial.’ This works best if you if you are dressed to the nines with a sash that reads, for example, ‘conduct.’

 

12. A Paranoid Mockingbird

How To Kill A Mockingbird – still stealing our hearts, and the prize for ‘Most Creative Law Themed Costume.’
