Courtroom Theme Days

A strong argument for the retention of judges' and barristers' wigs is based on the notion that wearing them gives a degree of protective anonymity (so that orificers of the court are not recognised easily outside the court in their private lives)

With the assistance of a skilled costumiere, based in the court building, there could be theme days - dress ups for each session. The law List for the day could read 'Court 7 Afternoon - Justice Hanger Crown v Tindale prelim hearing Pirates of the Carribean.' or 'Court 5 Morning - Justice Bleath Crown v Flintoff sentencing Spanish Inquisition.', and everybody involved would need to appear dressed accordingly.

       Jones: Not Guilty.   

       Judge: Arr, yeh best stick to th' theme or I'll 'ave yeh keelhauled!
