I was very sorry to hear last week that Sir Henry Hodge, President of the Asylum and Immigration Tribunal, has died. He was a genial, very affable man, with an amused twinkle almost always in his eye. AIT stakeholder meetings and the like were made all the more bearable by his self deprecating and humorous chairing.
There was an obituary in The Guardian yesterday for those interested in learning more about his achievements. He had a proud record of working with the vulnerable and disadvantaged. The success and reputation of solicitors firm Hodge Jones and Allen is a lasting achievement.
