Law Society comments on the passing of Sir Anthony Hart
The Law Society is saddened to learn of the
death of Sir Anthony Hart.
Sir Anthony Hart was a distinguished judge who
presided over some of the most difficult criminal trials of his era. He also
chaired the Historical Abuse Inquiry with distinction.
He was known to be fair,
humane and an exemplary member of the Bench.
The solicitor branch of the
profession will deeply mourn his passing, as shall the whole legal community.
