Professor Michael Bridge awarded QC Honoris Causa

Christopher Hancock QC and Duncan Matthews QC are delighted to announce that Professor Michael Bridge has been appointed as QC Honoris Causa.

The rank of QC Honoris Causa is distinct from the Queen’s Counsel awards competition and is awarded to lawyers and legal academics who have made a major contribution to the law of England and Wales outside practice in the courts.

Honorary silks were first awarded in the late nineteenth century and it has been the practice for governments to recommend a small number of lawyers and legal academics for this honour.

Professor Bridge is a qualified barrister with a door tenancy at 20 Essex Street. He currently holds posts as Professor Emeritus at the London School of Economics, Professor of Law at the National University of Singapore, a Senior Research Fellow at Harris Manchester College, University of Oxford, and Visiting Professor of Law at Queen Mary University of London. His research interests lie in secured transactions and insolvency, international and domestic sale of goods, uniform law, private international law, comparative private law and personal property law.

He authors, co-authors and edits, a number of the seminal texts in these fields which include; Benjamin’s Sale of Goods; treatises on Sale of Goods, International Sale of Goods, Personal Property Law, International Sale of Goods in the Conflict of Laws and The Law of Security and Title-Based Transactions.

This rare accolade is a fitting tribute to the outstanding contribution Professor Bridge has made in the field of commercial and international trade law and we congratulate Professor Bridge on this well-deserved appointment.
