High court usually refers to the superior court (or supreme court) of a country or state. In some countries, it is the highest court (for example, Australia). In others, it is positioned lower in the hierarchy of courts (for example, England and Wales). A person who presides as a judge in such a court may be called a High Court judge, or, in some cases, a High Court Justice.
