QCs are back

Chris Finlayson announced:

The government has responded to concerns from the legal profession and will restore the title of Queen’s Counsel to recognise outstanding members of the independent bar, Attorney-General Christopher Finlayson announced today.

Can’t say I’m too bothered either way. When or if we become a republic, the name will have to change – but any change should be part of an informed public debate and decision.

When QEII dies, all the QCS will then become KCs – that will be a lot of reprinting!

The title of KC/QC started in 1603 with Sir Francis Bacon.
