Admission & Counsel Moving
Candidates for admission to the bar ceremonies and their moving counsel have the option of wearing traditional court attire (wigs, bands, white shirt and gowns) or gowns over neat clothing.  Neat clothing means dark suit, white shirt and tie for men and equivalent dress for women (women must wear a white shirt or blouse). 
For hiring legal regalia outside of the Auckland region or on a casual basis in Auckland we require a bond of $200.00.
Delivery Costs
We can arrange courier delivery at an additional cost of $10.00 each way within the Auckland CBD, $15.00 each way within the North Island, and $32.50 each way for orders sent to South Island, New Zealand.
Payment Options in advance, or when collecting regalia
Payment is to be made online when placing your order.
Combining Hire and Purchase of Regalia
You can choose to hire some items and purchase some items of a full set of Legal regalia.

If you choose to hire some items, the hire items will need to be returned at the times stated on your invoice to avoid late fee penalties.
