This chapter examines the education received by the judges in India, looking at law degrees and barristers. The judges received their baccalaureate degrees from about three dozen colleges in India, ranging from the oldest and most prestigious — Presidency College, Madras (twelve); Elphinstone College, Bombay (nine); Presidency College, Calcutta (five); and Ewing Christian College, Allahabad (five) — to the relatively unknown with modest reputations such as Holkar College in Indore and St. Andrews College in Gorakhpur. The differences between the two generations (1950–70 and 1971–89) are significant. A dozen received an undergraduate degree in England, most from a college affiliated with Cambridge University, and all but one (M.H. Beg) of these was a pre-1971 appointee. Second generation judges remained at home for their baccalaureate degrees. It is also significant that second generation judges were twice as likely as the first to be the first college graduate in their extended families.
