British Academy

Glanville Williams was an eminent jurist, specialising in criminal law, the publication of whose Criminal Law: The General Part in 1953 transformed scholarly and professional attitudes to its subject. An introductory textbook for students, Learning the Law, published in 1944, has remained in print through several editions. Williams, who held four Chairs in law, including Quain Professor of Jurisprudence at University College, London and the Rouse Ball Professorship of English Law at Cambridge, was elected Fellow of the British Academy at the young age of 46. He gave support to the campaigns for the modification of the criminal law of abortion, drafting Bills in 1952, 1961, 1965 and 1966 and advising on the successful one of 1967. Obituary by P. R. Glazebrook.
