Peter Duffy QC, the leading human rights silk from Essex Court Chambers, has died just days after being appointed an assistant recorder. He was 44 years old. A former international chairman of Amnesty International (1989-91), he was called to the Bar in 1978 and took silk in 1997.

He was also to act for the Law Society in its case against solicitor Michael Dalton over the Solicitors Indemnity Fund.
