The Bar Council is carrying out a further consultation on court dress in civil, family and ceremonial proceedings. Anyone interested in participating will need to do so by 4pm tomorrow.
New court dress is to be instituted for judges of the High Court sitting in civil and family matters from autumn 2008. It will consist of a simple European-style robe, to be worn without a wig, collar or bands.
The Bar Council is now seeking further views about detailed proposals on new court dress for advocates in correlation to the judges' dress.
All members of the Bar and interested third parties are welcome to comment and all completed consultation papers should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org no later than 4.00pm on 19 April 2008.
