Farewell to wigs


The inevitable has happened and the wig is to be abolished, at least in civil and family cases. As of January 1st 2008 only judges sitting in criminal courts will have to wear the wig and traditional gown. Civil and family judges will wear a simple, zip-up (yuck!) gown instead. I've said it before and I'll say it again, I think this is a mistake. Newly appointed civil and family judges, who won't need their new gear very long, are advised to save themselves a few pennies and shop around.

Couldn't agree more.

As someone returning to private practice, and without any court dress I am being invited to splash out £700 bloody quid on fancy dress that I may only wear once or twice between now and January.

I'm not sure if there are transitional provisions for those like me but I sure bloody hope so.

Seems kind of sad to me. But, I'm speaking from the comfort of the U.S., where business dress in court is all you need (with one notable exception).
