David Vaughan CBE QC


The Members and Staff of Brick Court Chambers are deeply saddened to report the death this morning of David Vaughan CBE QC. His colossal impact on the practice of European Law both nationally and internationally is well-known. As a pioneer in this field he created and moulded much of the jurisprudence in this field. However more than this he was a much loved colleague, and inspiration to many who have followed in his footsteps. His larger-than-life character will be missed both in Chambers and at the Bar more widely. Our thoughts are with his family, Leslie, William and Kitty.
