Coroners' Courts follows the coroner's investigation of a death from initial report to the inquest conclusion and subsequent issues including prevention of future deaths reports. The book is an easy to read reference for those involved in the coronial system.

  • It also provides clear, step by step guidance for the advocate and practical advice for the witness covering key topics such as preparing for an inquest, report writing, and attending court. In addition, it includes dedicated chapters on mass fatality incidents and treasure.

    Written by a full-time coroner with more than 20 years experience, it provides a unique insight into the working of a coroner's court with explanations of the coroner's duties, the post-mortem examination, the purpose of the inquest, and the nature of the coroner's conclusion.

  • This book contains a clear, practical treatment of all topics from routine casework to the complex effects of the Human Rights legislation. Re-written to encompass the Coroners and Justice Act 2009, it also describes the potential relationship between the coroner and the Medical Examiner's Office.
