Indian judges no longer lords

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Here's a thing; "Judges in India will no longer have to be addressed in court as "my lord" or "my lordship" - terms dating back to the days of British rule over India."

    "The Bar Council of India said "your honour" or "honourable court" can be used in the courtroom instead.
    Lawyers can also address the court as "sir" or its regional equivalent."

    Hmmm. I wonder whether they understand the origins of the various terms at issue...

    (I do agree with the dispensation on the slightly ludicrous dress they've been required to wear, but won't mention the fact that most courts use English.)

    (...damn, damn, damn)
