Doughty Street Chambers mourns Stephen Knafler QC

It is with enormous sadness that we have to announce that Stephen Knafler QC has passed away in hospital after a short illness. 

Stephen was a greatly admired and respected practitioner of exceptional ability, and a passionate figure in human rights law for over 30 years. It is a terrible loss, there is no doubt that the Bar will be diminished by his absence.

Chambers offers its support and deepest condolences to Stephen's family. They are very much in our thoughts at this tragic time.
