The staff, trustees and remaining patrons of the Public Law Project are very sad to hear of Sir Henry Brooke’s passing. He was a unique figure in the legal profession.

Jo Hickman, PLP’s Director said:

Henry was a principled, inspirational, kind man. We will miss him terribly. Our thoughts are with Biddy and his family.’

Sir Henry posted, ‘My tweets will be stilled for a while‘ on his popular Twitter account before entering hospital for what he described as ‘routine’ heart surgery.  He was 81.
