Sir David Hughes Parry QC was probably one of the most powerful and influential Welsh jurists of the twentieth century. As founding Director of the Institute of Advanced Legal Studies, he created a vehicle that would raise the standing of English legal scholarship on the global stage. An astute operator in the world of university politics, he became Vice-Chancellor and, later, Chairman of the Court of the University of London, and served as Vice-Chairman of the powerful University Grants Committee.
As Professor of English Law at the University of London, he laid the foundations for the development of the Department of Law at the London School and Economics into a centre of excellence in legal scholarship.

It recreates vividly the life and world of an important legal scholar, university administrator, law reformer, policymaker and contributor to Welsh public life. A lucid and enjoyable read.’
Professor David Sugarman, Professor of Law at the University of Lancaster
