Senior Counsel
The title of Senior Counsel
Senior Counsel
or State Counsel (post-nominal letters: SC) is given to a senior lawyer in some countries that were formerly part of the British Empire. "Senior Counsel" is used in current or former Commonwealth countries or jurisdictions that have chosen to change the title "Queen's Counsel" to a name without monarchical connotations, sometimes (but not always) because the British monarch is no longer head of state, such that reference to the Queen is no longer appropriate. Examples of jurisdictions which have made the change because of the latter reason include Mauritius, Zambia, India, Hong Kong, the Republic
Republic
of Ireland, South Africa, Kenya, Malawi, Singapore, Guyana
Guyana
and Trinidad and Tobago. Just as a junior counsel is "called to the [Outer] Bar", a Senior Counsel
