Inquests: A Practical Guide

Accredited by APIL Training

The circumstances of nearly 8% of all deaths are considered in detail at inquests held by Coroners. Such hearings are often the only opportunity for the family and the public to find out what happened and provide a challenge to those representing them or clients whose conduct may be called into question.

A representative at an inquest will be able to assist the client, assess the weight of the evidence, identify the strengths and weaknesses of the case for or against the client in allied proceedings and advise them accordingly.

The law, practice and procedure relating to inquests is unique. This practical and comprehensive course is an essential guide to practitioners who have a basic understanding as well as those who have experience of this field of law.

By attending this course you will learn:

  • The role, duties and powers of the Coroner
  • Coronial law in outline
  • Who are interested persons
  • The rules of evidence and disclosure

  • Types of conclusions or verdicts
