  • I remember Tom and his family as a close family friend when Tom went to the bar as a pupil of my father, the late William Forbes, QC. The family weekends in Wales with the Binghams remain oneof my cherished memories. He will be greatly missed.

  • I would recommend anyone who wants to get a flavour of the law and human rights issues to read Lord Bingham's Rule of Law. It covers the basics and homes in on the controversies.

  • I met Lord Bingham at a Law lecture last July and although I expected to find a pompous Lord owing to all his achievement, he was surprisingly humble and very calm. A great judge indeed, one to be admired and one who has left us great works in his judgement like A & Others and his book on the Rule of Law. May his soul rest in eternal peace

  • He was an outstanding judge. Perhaps, second to the great Lord Denning.
