We are delighted to congratulate Edwin Glasgow QC who was last night honoured with a Lifetime Achievement Award at the Chambers UK Bar Awards 2013.
Described by Chambers UK as “something of a legend in his own lifetime”, Edwin Glasgow QC’s distinguished career in the law has spanned five decades.
He was called to the Bar in 1969, took Silk in 1987 and between 1997 and 2000 was Head of Chambers at Thirty Nine Essex Street. He was Chairman of the Financial Reporting Review Panel between 1992 and 1998, and was made a CBE in 1999 in recognition of his services to the City. He has been involved in many of the public inquiries and litigation associated with major disasters, and other high profile events, over the last two decades including Piper Alpha, the Guinness DTI Inquiry and the Bloody Sunday Inquiry.
Motor racing is one of his many interests and he is the Chairman of Stewards of Royal Automobile Club, the President of the International Tribunal of the FIA and Vice-President of the International Court of Appeal of the FIA. He also has a particular interest in legal education and is Chairman of the International Advocacy Training Council and a past chairman of the Bar’s Advocacy Training Council. Edwin is a Bencher of Gray’s Inn.
