Ruby Bhatti, consultant at Bradford firm Riaz Solicitors, opened the summer in style at a royal garden party last month. ‘I’ve no idea why I was invited,’ she says, though the fact she finds time for 18 public and third sector appointments as well as the day job may have had something to do with it.

Obiter can’t offer an invitation to Buckingham Palace – but there is still the Legal Charities Garden Party on the North Lawns of Lincoln’s Inn this Wednesday. See you there.
