The legal profession as we know it has its own peculiar traditions most of which are from antiquity. An instance of this is the wig and gown which has quite become the de rigueur for members of the Legal profession.

Why can’t we just don our fashionable suits with a little pizazz when appearing before courts like we see in the movies? The history behind the practice of w...
