Barrister’s in all Australian jurisdictions, when required to do so, wear court dress as worn in the United Kingdom.
Queens Counsel or Senior Counsel wear a black silk gown, a bar jacket, bands or a jabot and a horsehair wig with curls at the side and ties down the back. On formal occasions, they wear full-bottomed wigs. In addition, Victorian Senior Counsel wear a black rosette hanging from the back of their gown.
Whether a barrister wears formal court dress will depend on:
1. The court they are appearing in and
2. The nature of the case.
The style of court dress for barristers also depends on:
1. Whether they are Queen’s Counsel or Senior Counsel (barristers who have been formally recognised for their experience and skill), or
2. Junior counsel.
Full court dress for a barrister includes a wig and robes made up of a black bar jacket, jabot and gown. Queen’s Counsel and Senior Counsel are distinguished from junior counsel by the design and fabric of their robes.
