LONDON, ENGLAND - OCTOBER 01: Barroness Hale of Richmond, one of the new 11 Justices of the Supreme Court, and the only woman, arrives in Westminster Abbey after being sworn in on October 1, 2009 in London, England. Lady Hale wears a hat despite other Justices of the Supreme court breaking tradition and choosing not to wear wigs. The Judges, who are to replace the former Law Lords, mark the start of the legal year with a traditional religious service, arriving from the Royal Courts of Justice for a service which is followed by a procession to The Houses of Parliament and then a reception held by the Lord Chancellor. The ceremony in Westminster Abbey has roots in the religious practice of the judges praying for guidance at the start of the legal year. The custom dates back to the Middle Ages when the High Court was held in Westminster Hall. (Photo by Dan Kitwood/Getty Images)
