Register now Register with The Lawyer Aziz Lahouasnia 17 January 2010 at 22:34 I was deeply saddened to hear that Sir & Prof. Ian Brownlie, Q.C tragically died in a car accident in Egypt. His family, friends, colleagues, UK and the international law community worldwide lost an exceptional man both for his outstanding contribution to law and for his irreproachable integrity and conduct. I first attended his lectures at LSE, and since then I always keep his textbooks by my side as they are a must for any international lawyer. Through a friend of mine (Maitre Saad Djebbar), I followed with genuine interest the cases in which Sir Ian Brownlie was involved particularly at the International Court of Justice or European Court of Human Rights recently. He was indeed a giant in his field with exceptional personal qualities that very few scholars or politicians possess. I agree with statement made above that: “To say that Sir Ian will be sadly missed is an understatement of monumental proportions” Rest in peace Sir Ian Brownlie Reply Link Name Email Cancel reply Threaded commenting powered by interconnect/it code.
