ATL’s Legally Themed Halloween Costume Contest: The Winner (2019)
Posted on Wednesday November 13, 2019
You came, you saw, you voted, and one submission absolutely dominated in this year’s legally themed Halloween costume contest. Our winners ran away with 30 percent of the vote this year. Making legally themed Halloween costumes isn’t an easy feat, and many of this year’s submissions were quite creative. As usual, we applaud the brave souls who subjected themselves to our judgment.
And now, the moment you’ve been waiting for. Who won our annual costume contest?
An entire class of 1Ls from Florida International University Law stole the show this year. Here they are, continuing the tradition of dressing like Thomas E. Baker, their beloved Constitutional Law professor, who wears a “school uniform” each and every day: A long-sleeved white dress shirt and tie with black pants. This has been done every year since 2012. Well done, everyone — especially Professor Baker!
