The appointment of honorary recorders

Appointment of Honorary Recorders – 2007

Since implementing the Courts Act 1971 and establishing the Crown Court for England and Wales, most large City Councils have power to appoint the Resident Judge to be Honorary Recorder of the city during his tenure of the office.

This continues the link between the city and its’ criminal court which has existed throughout the history of the courts of Quarter Sessions which were abolished by that Act.
