It is with great pleasure that we present this Liber Amicorum - Volume I on the year of Ian Stewart Forrester QC LL.D.'s 70th birthday and at this point of transition in his extraordinary professional life. This Volume I is a collection of tributes to Ian outstanding career and articles signed by prominent academics and practitioners around the world on the most current topics in EU law and policies, human rights and intellectual property. Born in Glasgow from a Scottish family, Ian practiced law in multiple cities, Brussels, New York and London, to mention some. Ian arrived in Brussels in 1973 as one of the first generation of UK lawyers at the time when the UK joined the European Union. He participated in many of the leading cases in the formation of key principles of EU law, particularly EU competition law such as Bosman, Bullock (Distillers), GSK, Servier, Pfizer, Magill, IMS Health and Microsoft. Ian lived these cases professionally and academically, debating these and other cases with students, professors and researchers. He has been a mentor to many younger lawyers and is also a prolific writer of seminal articles. His good spirits and quirky sense of humour have made him friends and professional connections all over the world and this Liber Amicorum - Volume I is an occasion to mark the outstanding merits of a remarkable man and express the long lasting and affectionate friendship.
