What do you call a high court judge?

Happily, the judiciary website has a very useful list, which notes that while magistrates can be addressed as “Your Worship”, Crown Court judges as “Your Honour” and appeal court judges as “My Lord”/”My Lady”, most judges are plain old “Sir” or “Madam”.

Consequently, how do you address the judge?

  1. In Court. In court parties/legal practitioners refer to the judge as 'Your. Honour'
  2. In person. Outside court a Judge should be addressed as 'Judge', and referred to 'Judge (surname)' or 'his/her Honour'.
  3. In writing. (Judge) The appropriate mode of address for correspondence to a Judge.
  4. In writing. (Chief Judge)

How do you address a letter to a judge?

Method 1 Writing a Letter to a Judge

  2. Write your own address beneath this.
  3. Write "Dear Judge (surname)," to begin the letter.
  4. Use the language in which you write best.
  5. Refer to the name of the case (if relevant).
  6. Make the purpose of your letter clear.

Is a judge and a justice the same thing?

Judges and justices are court officials who make the final decision in every case that is brought to a court of law. Depending on the jurisdiction, they can sit on the bench anywhere between six to eight years. Judges and justices must retire at least by the age of 70.
