Stanley Brodie

It is with much regret that we report that Master Brodie (Stanley Brodie QC) sadly died on Tuesday 3 May, aged 91. The Inn’s flag was flown at half-mast on Thursday 5 May, in his memory.

Master Brodie was Called to the Bar by The Inner Temple in 1954. During his time in junior practice, and over 40 years as a Queen’s Counsel, he had a wide commercial and financial practice covering a number of areas including property finance and banking as well as lotteries, gaming and competition law. He advised the National Lottery. He was Recorder of the Crown Court for 13 years, during which time he also served as a Deputy Official Referee (now known as a Judge of the Technology and Construction Court).

Master Brodie was elected a Governing Bencher of the Inn in 1983 and served as Treasurer in 2000, the Millennium year. To mark this momentous year the Inn instituted a series of five Millennium lectures, under the title “The English Legal System in the 21st Century”, which were later published.

Details of any funeral and/or memorial service will be circulated as appropriate in due course.
