Ms. Bailey then obtained her Juris Doctor from the Florida State University College of Law. During law school, she obtained her Certificate of Comparative International Law from Oxford University in Oxford, England, and was awarded the Certificate for Distinguished Pro Bono Service for serving as a pro bono law clerk to the Honorable Judge Kathleen F.
