He is also a published author with twenty non-fiction books and one work of fiction to his credit as well as a sought-after public speaker who has provided over 2,800 lectures to college and professional audiences over the span of his career.

Assistant Professor Cornel Plebani stated, "The School of Legal Studies is pleased to host one of the preeminent legal minds of the twentieth century and provide our students with a rare opportunity to hear firsthand about some of the most noted criminal trials in recent history. Mr. Bailey has enjoyed a storied career involving many cases which remain fixed as points of both popular and academic interest."

The presentation is free and open to the public.
