Hello last day me and my Dad where questioning ourselves why are judges called your honor and her honor. So then Dad then decided to turn this question into a homeschool assignment.
Here is my guess why the judges are called that: I think judges are called your honor and her honor because judges have some kind of royalty thing from back in the medieval days.
What I Learned From The Research
The Supreme Court of Canada discourages the use of designations referring to “Lord or Lordship” or “Lady or Ladyship”. They prefer “Justice”. … The proper designation of a Provincial Court Judge is “Your Honour“. The proper designation of a Provincial Court Judicial Justice is “Your Worship”. And here is the link for the credit: www.courthouselibrary.ca › our-legal-knowledge-base › forms-address .
So from what I understand it’s just simply a way to respect the judge. Even though I prefer to call judges lord I can’t because it’s disrespectful to the judge and the court. Also a reason why you shouldn’t call a judge one of the things you’re not supposed call them above is if ever actually do have a case you’ll probably lose it because of that reason.
What realy questions me is the lawyer makes way more money but doesn’t have a special name like the judges and normally lawyers are called by there name or lawyer.
So that’s it on why Judges are called your honor and her honor.
