From the Author
Academical dress - also known as academic dress or academic regalia etc, is both a legacy of an ancient academic tradition in universities, and a part of a wider western cultural heritage. This book looks specifically at the situation in New Zealand, but locates that very much as part of the English university tradition, especially that of Cambridge. Although I have had an interest in academic dress since I acquired my first degree, if not before then, the formal study of academic dress was spurred on by my membership of the Burgon Society, which is warmly recommended to anyone with a serious interest in academic traditions.

After graduation he was admitted as a Barrister and Solicitor of the High Court of New Zealand, and later practised as a Barrister.

Noel Cox holds the position of Professor of Law at Aberystwyth University, where he was Head of the Department of Law and Criminology 2010-2013.
