English courts consider nixing mandatory wigs for barristers amid concerns they’re ‘culturally insensitive’

UK courts are presently deliberating whether traditional wigs, mandatory for barristers, should be discontinued due to concerns raised on their cultural insensitivity. This is part of a wider conversation about the symbolism and cultural implications of such practices, with some arguing for a more inclusive and contemporary approach. The wigs, traditionally made of horsehair, have been part of British legal attire for over 300 years, and the controversy reflects broader societal discussions about colonialism, tradition, and diversity.
