QuoteThe UK Supreme Court has announced that counsel appearing before it need not wear "any or all of the elements of traditional court dress," in a move they say would provide an appropriate environment for considered discussion of legal issues."The Justices of the Court do not wear legal dress themselves and have decided not to impose this obligation on advocates appearing before them," the court said in a statement."In future, provided that all the advocates in any particular case agree, they may communicate to the Registrar their wish to dispense with part or all of court dress. The Court will normally agree to such a request. "It is anticipated that while some advocates will not wish to take advantage of this dispensation, others may prefer to reduce their legal dress to a simple gown, or to appear without legal dress at all."The Lord President has confirmed this afternoon that there are "no proposals" to consider a similar proposal in Scotland.
