New CJ: No more loud colors, collarless shirts in court

No round collar shirts, loud colors, and mini skirts, and no one must answer a phone call in public areas of the courts. This was the order of Chief Justice Lucas Bersamin to court employees.

Bersamin made the call during his visit to the Quezon City Hall of Justice last Wednesday. He said judges, justices and court employees should always wear decent and presentable clothes.

“It is high time we went back to that image of the judiciary that is very respected, the Judiciary that is conscious of its place in the society,” Bersamin said.

“Ako rin ay nakikiusap, yung dress code, wala na pong t-shirt. Kung kayo mga babae at meron kayong collarless na shirt, may blazer. Maliit na pakiusap yan sa inyo…please do it for my sake,” Bersamin said.
