CORONERS AND INQUESTS Course (fee payable)29/11/2019




January-February 2020

Course Overview

The former Chief Coroner of England and Wales, HH Sir Peter Thornton QC, will repeat his short course entitled Coroners and Inquests at King’s College London in January and February. This will be a course for post-graduate medical law students and lawyers.

Coroners and lawyers are invited to join this ‘enormously popular’ course. A number of places are still open.

The course will consist of a series of five interactive 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. Participants will be expected to participate in discussion and give short presentations. They will 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? How should they do it?
