The Law Commission was very sad to learn of the death of Julian Farrand. He served as Law Commissioner between 1984 to 1989, leading the Property Law Team.
The Property Law reports we published during this period covered a variety of subjects including Land Registration, Transfer of Land and Conveyancing. It is of particular note that, 30 years later, the Commission is still undertaking work in these important areas.
Throughout his distinguished career in academia, Julian Farrand retained a close interest in the work of the Commission and he will be greatly missed. Our thoughts are with his family and friends at this time, in particular his wife, Lady Brenda Hale, also a former Law Commissioner.
