Vale barrister Sandy Dawson, SC – ‘one of the finest’

Dec 1, 2022

Share Highly regarded barrister Sandy Dawson, SC, has died after a long battle with brain cancer. Mr Dawson, 50, “passed away peacefully surrounded by his family” at the weekend in Sydney, said NSW Bar Association president Gabrielle Bashir, SC, in a note to members on Monday. Sandy Dawson with Labor MP Emma Husar after settling her claim against Buzzfeed in 2019. Steven Siewert His death is a second tragedy in recent years for the Dawson family. Mr Dawson’s sister, Katrina – also a barrister – was killed in the Lindt Cafe siege of 2014 . Mr Dawson’s brother, Angus, stepped down as local head of McKinsey last week citing some “very difficult personal circumstances”. “His premature death is a tragedy and devastating loss for all who were touched by the magic, warmth, strength and sincerity of his personality,” said NSW Chief Justice Andrew Bell. “The legal profession has lost one of its finest … We honour his life and career as we struggle to cope with the unbearable sadness of his passing.” Advertisement The dapper silk was a leader of the Bar, with his primary focus being defamation. He represented leading publishers, including Nine (the publisher of this masthead) and was known for his meticulous approach to cases and formidable cross-examination skills. Mr Dawson’s clients included radio broadcaster Ray Hadley, former Labor MP Emma Husar and The Australian Financial Review columnist Joe Aston . He defended claims brought by Joe Hockey (against Nine) and NRL chairman Peter V’landys (against the ABC). He was engaged to represent Nine in the defamation action brought by Ben Roberts-Smith over reports in The Sydney Morning Herald about his service in Afghanistan. However, he was forced to withdraw two months before the opening of the trial in June 2021, due to ill-health. He still attended some days of the marathon trial, when he was feeling better, and would sit with the defence team. Mr Dawson was also a member of the NSW government’s expert panel on defamation reform and stayed involved even after being diagnosed. NSW Attorney-General Mark Speakman, SC, said he had made a “major contribution to defamation law reform”. Mr Dawson practised from Banco chambers, which issued a statement saying he “added colour and atmosphere to the Bar, at a time when real characters are becoming rarer”. Advertisement It said he “never complained, or even commented on how unfair it was [to have cancer]“. “Sandy endured his terrible illness with courage and equanimity. Visitors, expecting to be sad, would find Sandy telling jokes and stories.” Ms Bashir said Mr Dawson’s skills “extended to class actions, commercial disputes, criminal law, racing appeals and professional liability matters”. “Sandy was born to be a barrister,” she said. “He loved the practice of advocacy and was a master of our craft. He was a true gentleman with the sharpest of intellect. He was an extraordinary friend to many in the profession. His presence brightened our courtrooms and chambers. “Many of us will have enduring memories of having to control bursts of laughter following a whispered quip from Sandy at the bar table, Sandy captivating the court, his later regaling colleagues with entertaining stories on return to chambers, or being witness to one of his hilarious impersonations.” Advertisement Ms Bashir said the profession would “never forget Sandy’s fortitude and resilience during the Lindt siege, following Katrina’s death and at the lengthy inquest, all excruciating in turn”. “Sandy’s return to practice exemplified his courage and dedication to the profession.” The family later established a foundation to support women barristers. ”As a director of the Katrina Dawson Foundation, Sandy for years supported the education of women with the Foundation, providing scholarships for female undergraduates to attend the Women’s College at the University of Sydney. “Sandy was also a member of the selection panel for the Katrina Dawson Award, through which he supported the discovery and mentoring of a luminous procession of exceptional female barristers. “The outstanding example Sandy set in all aspects of his professional career is engraved in our collective consciousness. Advertisement Illustrated portrait of Sandy Dawson, SC, presented to him on his 50th birthday this year by friends in the law and media. John Shakespeare “Sandy faced his final battle with cancer with his customary grit, fierce determination and devotion to those he loved. “While Sandy was committed to the Bar, it was love for his wife, [four] children and wider family that was of foremost importance to him.” Ms Bashir asked that the privacy of the Dawsons be respected. “The family have already endured in the public eye following the death of Sandy’s sister, our colleague, Katrina. “Sandy’s family request privacy and in lieu of flowers or meals suggest making a donation to the Cure Brain Cancer Foundation if you wish to do so.” Michael Pelly is the legal editor, based in our Sydney newsroom. He has been a senior adviser to federal and state attorneys-general and written two books, one a biography of former High Court Chief Justice Murray Gleeson. Email Michael at Save
