Indian-origin barrister sworn in as Judge in UK

LONDON (TIP): Kalyani Kaul, a prominent barrister of Indian-origin who has handled high-profile cases, has been sworn in as a Circuit Judge in the UK.

54-year-old Kalyani, who has spent much of the past 32 years defending serious and high-profile cases, is known for her extensive and wide-ranging experience in heavy-weight criminal defence work.

She was called to the Bar in 1983 and became a Recorder in 2009. As a Recorder she prepared cases for trial and presided over hearings in county courts.

She took Silk in 2011 — in order to “take silk” a lawyer usually has to serve as a barrister or a Scottish advocate for at least 10 years.

Kalyani was sworn in as a Circuit Judge on Monday and will be sitting at Snaresbrook Crown Court with immediate effect.
