Justice Holland Becomes Only Third American To Be Named
HonoraryMaster of the Bench


JUSTICE RANDY J. HOLLAND L’72, of the Delaware Supreme Court, has become only the third American judge to be elected an Honorary Master of the Bench by Lincoln’s Inn of London, England. Recipients of the Honorary Master of the Bench are distinguished jurists from common law countries. The other Americans so honored were U.S. Supreme Court Justices Ruth Bader Ginsberg and John Paul Stevens.

Holland became the youngest person to serve on the Delaware Supreme Court upon his appointment in 1986. He was reappointed and confirmed unanimously for a second 12-year term in January 1999.

The national President of the American Inns of Court, Holland was elected to a second term in 2002. The American Inns of Court are designed to improve the skills, professionalism and ethics of the bench and bar. More than 20,000 state, federal and administrative law judges, attorneys, legal scholars and thirdyear law students participate in their programs.

Holland received Penn Law’s 2002 Award of Merit, in addition to the 1992 Judge of the Year Award from the National Child Support Enforcement Association. Prior to his judgeship, Holland was in private practice as a partner in Morris, Nichols Arsht and Tunnell.
