The English legal system has a long history of traditions and symbolism. Do you know your periwigs from your powdered wigs, your judicial dress from your barrister’s robes, and your green bags from your gavels? While some of the quirks and traditions of the English legal system may seem archaic, even bizarre, they from part of the fundamental constitution of UK culture and are therefore of relevance to anyone with an interest in it.
Questions and answers are taken from Geoffrey Rivlin, First Steps in the Law, 7th edition and Martin Partington, Introduction to the English Legal System 2017-2018.
