Brian Simpson: The Guardian Obituary

We have previously noted the passing of the English legal historian A. W. Brian Simpson. The Guardian has now posted an obituary. It commences:
Brian Simpson, who has died aged 79, was one of the greatest academic lawyers of his generation in the fields of legal history, legal philosophy and – more recently – human rights. His commitment to excellence in scholarship combined with his gift for a good story to make him a superb teacher and raconteur.
