“A survey conducted by the Bar Council has found that the majority of respondents back the retention of wigs in civil and family cases. The Bar Council, which represents 15,000 barristers in England and Wales, conducted the survey following an announcement in July 2007 by the Lord Chief Justice that the Court Dress worn by Judges sitting in civil and family cases would be changed in January 2008. Judges sitting in these cases will wear a newly designed gown, but no wigs.”
