For those wishing to appear at the ceremony (i.e. those wishing to sit in front of the bar) attire is either:
- full ceremonial attire – which includes a wig, white court shirt, bands, black jacket and gown; or
- a gown over business clothing.
(Wigs should not be worn unless full traditional attire is selected).
Otherwise, barristers who are not attired in one of those ways may join the ceremony by sitting behind the bar, in the public gallery.
