    There is no specific answer to that, Black coat is never announced as their official dress. Many people believe that on the death of Queen Mary II in 1694, it was an order from the King William III that all of the nation's judges and lawyers have to attend the funeral in black coats as a sign of mourning, since then all lawyers wear Black coat. Some believe that black is the symbol of power and they wear it to show the criminals that they are more powerful than them, some believe that Black is just an official color that is why they wear black coats.
