A SHORT COURSE FOR CORONERS AND LAWYERS
KING’S COLLEGE LONDON
CORONERS AND INQUESTS
The former Chief Coroner of England and Wales, HH Sir Peter Thornton QC, will deliver his short course entitled Coroners and Inquests as part of King’s College London’s MA post-graduate degree programme in Medical Law.
Coroners and lawyers are invited to join this ‘enormously popular’ course as external attendees.
The course will consist of a series of five seminars which will explain and discuss the law and procedure of coroners, covering a comprehensive range of topics from reporting deaths, investigating cases, conducting inquests and reports to prevent future deaths. Students will be expected to participate in discussion and with short presentations and to consider the importance of the role played by coroners in the administration of justice: Who are they? What do they do? What is the purpose of their work?
The five two-hour seminars will take place at King’s College London’s Strand Campus in the heart of legal London, on consecutive Tuesdays from 3-5pm on the following dates: 25 September 2018; 2, 9, 16 and 23 October 2018.
A limited number of places is available.
CPD points will be available for 10 hours together with a King’s College London certificate of completion. The fee for the whole course, payable to King’s, is £500.
