UK Supreme Court lawyers allowed to dress down (The Independent)

Lawyers appearing at the UK’s highest court will no longer have to wear traditional dress, it was announced today.

From now on advocates in cases heard at the Supreme Court in London will be able to “dispense with any or all of the elements of traditional court dress”.

The announcement was made by the court’s president, Lord Phillips.

Supreme Court justices do not wear legal dress themselves.
