The U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Georgia has very strict Dress and Attire rules that you should be aware of before you pack.

Sandals or flip flops are not permitted, so please bring a pair of closed-toe shoes.

Jeans and sleeveless tops are also not permitted; dress for men and women is expected to approximate 1950’s business casual.

Additionally, at times the courtroom can get very chilly, so prepare to dress in layers.
