Robin Milton Stewart was born in Simla, India, on 5 August 1938 and was educated at Abberley Hall and Winchester College before going up to New College, Oxford, where he read law. After Oxford, he was called to the Bar of The Middle Temple in 1963. He then spent some years working in industry before returning to North Eastern Circuit of the Bar in Newcastle-upon-Tyne in 1971. In 1978, Robin was appointed Queen’s Counsel and a Recorder of the Crown Court. He soon established a well-deserved reputation as a ‘must-have’ specialist in the field of personal injury litigation, particularly arising out of professional (medical) negligence. He was a founder and first chairman of the Professional Negligence Bar Association. He was involved with the Bar Mutual Indemnity Fund and the Professional Conduct Committee of the Bar Council. He was a Bencher of the Middle Temple and Master of Silver. He sat as a Deputy High Court Judge and undertook the onerous role of Head of Chambers, physically moving his Chambers from Middle Temple Lane to 199 Strand. Robin had a love of art and the arts - he was something of a connoisseur - and enjoyed spending time among the sights and tastes of the world, particularly France. He married Lynda Medhurst in 1962 with whom he had three sons. Sadly, Robin was forced to retire in 1998 as the ravages of Parkinson’s Disease took over his fine mind and body. He served as a Trustee and Honorary Secretary of the Parkinson’s Disease Society (now Parkinsons UK) for several years, re-writing its constitution and reinvigorating the organization. Robin passed away in Northallerton on 31 August 2011.
