In memory of Mickey Dias (1921-2009)

I was very saddened to read recently that Cambridge University's Mickey Dias passed away on 17 November 2009. He was one of the truly great men that I have had the privilege to come across during my time in the law. He had a wonderfully dry sense of humour and an enormous patience for those not blessed with the same incredible intellect as he. "But where is the duty of care?" I can still hear him chuckling in a tort supervision as his eyes twinkled and his face lit up with a mischievous grin. With Mickey Dias law became both understandable and fun. He will be much missed. The Squire Law Library has more information here and also has a series of three interviews here.
