Michael C.Davey former Secretary to the Law Society has passed away

It is with deep regret and profound sadness that we inform you of the passing of Michael C. Davey former Secretary to the Law Society of Northern Ireland.

Michael graduated from the Faculty of Law of Liverpool and served his apprenticeship at C + J Black Solicitors before being admitted to the roll in September 1964.

Michael’s first association with the Society was in March 1966 when he became editor of the ‘Gazette’ of the Incorporated Law Society of Northern Ireland (the predecessor to the Writ magazine).

In 1985, Michael was appointed Secretary to the Law Society of Northern Ireland until his retirement in 1997.

Following his retirement, Michael maintained his involvement with the legal profession as Chair of the Legal Aid (Statutory) Committee from 1996 – 1999 and Chair of the Industrial, Social Security and Competition Appeal Tribunals.

Michael will be remembered with great fondness for his many years of dedicated service to the legal profession and to the Law Society of Northern Ireland.

As Secretary to the Society he showed great enthusiasm, kindness, commitment and guidance to the membership and to the staff of the Society .

On behalf of the Law Society of Northern Ireland I wish to offer our deepest condolences to Michael's wife Monica and their three children during this difficult time.

To confirm that Mr Michael Davey will be buried at 2.00 pm on Tuesday 5 July in St Columba’s, Knock.
