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.

       This could effect the outcome of the trials:   

       Judge: Jones, ye scalleywag, yeh be a'charged with some o' the ol' softwarr poiracy, 'ow deh ye plead?   

       Jones: Not Guilty.   

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

       Jones: Umm...(whispers with lawyer) Avast ye ol' bilge rat, I be no intarrloper, ne'er have I hung theh Jolly Roger. I swear on me mizzenmast I be a right Jack Tar.   

       Judge: Matey, I kin see clarr as th' day yeh be a hornswagglin' me, th' mutiny in yer eyes, t' th' hulk wi' yeh!
