THE ORDER OF THE COIF
The Order of the Coif is the National Honor Society devoted to the encouragement of high standards of legal scholarship with
chapters in leading law schools throughout the country. Graduates in the top ten percent of the class are eligible for election to
the Order of the Coif.
The Order takes its name from the word used to designate the cap which all the members of the Order were required to wear.
This cap or coif was originally of white lawn or silk, forming a close-fitting hood, to be seen today in old engravings, pictures
and effigies of distinguished Judges and Serjeants. Serjeants were an order of the highest rank of barrister at the English or Irish
bar. By the ancient privileges of the Serjeants, this coif was not to be taken off, even in the royal presence. When wigs came into
fashion the coif was changed, no longer being worn as a complete hood, but merely as a circular piece of white lawn fastened to
the top of the wig.
