HH John Dowse

It is with enormous sadness that Chambers has received the news of the death of John Dowse. 

He was our friend during the nearly 30 years he spent in Chambers and he remained our friend after his appointment to the bench in 2001.  He had been the most active of Deputy Heads of Chambers and the value of his work for our common good was incalculable. 

John brought life and not a little mischief wherever he went, but behind his frivolity was a serious man who achieved great things as a lawyer, as a judge and for Chambers. 

We know we are not the only ones mourning him.
