SAVE THE DATE – BLAGG dinner with guest Richard Heaton – Permanent Secretary – Ministry of Justice


Thursday, 6 October 2016

Likely venue: Chez Gerard, Chancery Lane 6.30pm for 7.00pm

This autumn we are holding another of our popular and oversubscribed dinners at Chez Gerard. In past years, we have invited popular speakers, including senior judges and barristers to address us. This year is no exception and Richard Heaton, Permanent Secretary at the Ministry of Justice has kindly accepted our invitation to be our guest speaker at the next dinner.

Richard Heaton is a barrister and was called to the Bar in 1988. He has had a truly remarkable career starting at the Government Legal Service where he later became the Head of Law and Governance at the DWP. He was later appointed First Parliamentary Counsel followed by Cabinet Office Permanent Secretary, before his appointment as Permanent Secretary at the MOJ.

We shall send out another email with the dining form in due course. We hope to subsidise students/pupils as we have done so in past years and any additional donations are always welcome.

In the meantime please indicate whether you wish to attend so that we are able to gauge numbers for the event – please email us at
