Suit Yourself

Interviews. Internships. Moot Court. Competition Teams. Drake Law School offers so many opportunities to further your experience and career – now we are offering a place to find gently used professional attire at your convenience!  Suit Yourself is a professional clothing closet located in Opperman Hall to provide students with professional clothing options through donations from alumni, faculty, staff, and local attorneys and professionals.

For Students

Suit Yourself will be available to all students in need of professional attire for interviews, internships, moot court or other competitions.

How Does it Work?

  • This is a free program for all Drake Law School students.
  • Students are able to look through and obtain the clothing of their choice and try on the clothing prior to taking it home.
  • We ask students to please take only what they need and plan to wear so that there is an adequate supply for other students.
  • Students may keep the clothing; however if you find that you are not using the item as you thought you might, or if for some reason it doesn't fit, you can return the clothing if it is in the same shape as you received it so that someone else can use it.

Where is Suit Yourself located?

Suit Yourself is located in Opperman 187, in the suite across from the Law Library.  We will also offer promotional events during peak interview seasons.

Can’t Find What You Need?

Drake University also contracts with Dress for Success in Des Moines for professional clothing. Contact CDO for a referral in order to access their collection of suits. In addition, you can contact Men on the Move in Des Moines to access their extensive wardrobe of suits.

Thank you to Victoria Cleaners for offering to help students with their items.  Contact CDO for details.

Suit Yourself welcomes donations of gently used professional suits and attire. If you are planning to come to campus for an upcoming program, interview, or event, you may drop your donation in the Career Development Office (Opperman) or in the Gorsche Student Services Suite (Cartwright).  Feel free to contact us in advance to let us know you will be coming.
