Superior Court of Justice - Gowning Update

Chief Justice Morawetz’s June 18, 2021 update to the Notice to the Profession and Public Regarding Court Proceedings was revised today to clarify the Court’s direction regarding gowning. It now provides:

For in-person proceedings, counsel must gown in accordance with paragraphs 59-61 of the Consolidated Provincial Practice Direction. Gowns are not required in virtual proceedings. Where gowning is required, counsel must gown regardless of whether the presiding judicial official is a judge or a master.
