Michael Bailey 1

Free talk reflects on a life in the law

Members of the public are invited to an evening of reflection as a solicitor shares highlights from his 50-year career.

Michael Bailey’s talk will launch the Rochester Bridge Trust’s programme of Bridge Wardens’ Lectures for 2016.

Mr Bailey has been the lead charity solicitor for the Trust for more than a decade, handling many major property transactions and advising on complex charity law issues. A consultant solicitor at asblaw, his career has included work with the Roman Catholic Diocese of Arundel and Brighton and time as Chairman of the Legal Aid Appeal Tribunal for the South East. He is also a past President of the Sussex Law Society and former Trustee of the Webb Memorial Trust, as well as having worked with schools and advised European governments.

Bridge Clerk Sue Threader, who is chief executive of Rochester Bridge Trust, explained: “Michael Bailey has long been a valued advisor to the Trust, during which time we have come to admire and respect him for both his professionalism and warm personality. As a result we are looking forward to this light-hearted reflection on his five decades in the law.”

The talk, entitled A life in the law – reflections on a fascinating 50-year career, will take place at 7pm on Thursday, 4th February, in the Bridge Chapel. Light refreshments will be available from 6.30pm.

It is free to attend but places are limited and must be booked. Please contact Sue O’Reilly to reserve your place by emailing sue@maxim-pr.co.uk or calling 01892 513033.
Bridge Wardens’ Lectures take place at regular intervals throughout the year. The next lecture, The Life and Career of Sir William Cubitt, will be on 3rd March. See www.rbt.org.uk for further information.
