Justices Divided Over 'Certiorari' Pronunciation

, The National Law Journal


A new and somewhat whimsical research article reveals that justices are "profoundly divided" into at least six camps on the proper way to say that Latin word.

What's being said

  • Inquiring Mind

    Is Regent University School of Law approved by the American Bar Association?

  • Andrew

    sersher - rare- eye for me. It‘s not good Latin (and I am a Latin scholar) but it‘s used on both sides of the Pond for a long, long time, and there is no need to change.

  • Liliane

    What do the Latin scholars say (and would it matter)?

  • Eric

    If the pronunciation is now open to the floor, why shouldn‘t a word with Latin origin take a hard "c"?
