Younger has passed from a Scottish school Subsequently proceeding to Balliol College, through an English university to a great re- Oxford, he graduated B.A. in 1883, and the putation at the English Bar. Lord Justice following year he was called to the English Bar. Younger was born in September 1861, being It was not long before his outstanding qualities a son of the late Mr James Younger, Alloa, as a pleader gained him widespread recognition, Clackmannanshire, and a brother of Sir George Younger, Bart., M.P. He was educated at Alloa Academy and Edinburgh Academy, where his

and he was soon recognised as one of the leading specialists in the important branch of legislation dealing with company law. In 1900 he took


silk. In 1909 he became an M.A. of his alma mater, and was made an Honorary Fellow in 1916. Lord Justice Younger was raised to the Bench in 1915, where he enhanced his reputation as a judge in the High Court of Justice until 1919, in which year he gained the high recognition of his present appointment as a Lord Justice of Appeal. Meantime in 1917 he was honoured by the order of Knighthood. In 1919 the University of Edinburgh recognised in Lord Justice Younger a distinguished representative of the English judicature in conferring on him the honorary degree of LL.D.

But Lord Justice Younger has also rendered his country important services from an extra judicial point of view in connection with the recent war, when he took an important and responsible part in connection with the exchange of prisoners of war and the review of exemption of enemy aliens from internment. Lord Justice Younger has all through during his career on the bench shewn judicial qualities of a very high order, and no doubt will enhance his high reputation by continued valuable services as a Lord Justice of Appeal.
