The Law Commission was very sad to learn today of the untimely death of Stuart Bridge. He served as Commissioner for Property, Family and Trust Law between 2001 and 2008.
Stuart led the team which produced reports covering a variety of important subjects including cohabitation, termination of tenancies for tenant default, compulsory purchase and trust law reform.
After leaving the Commission, Stuart sat as a Circuit Judge and continued to co-author Megarry and Wade: The Law of Real Property, a leading text on land law. He was a Life Fellow of Queens’ College, Cambridge.
Our thoughts are with Stuart’s family and friends during this time.
Sir Nicholas Green
