Coronial Law has grown and changed significantly in recent years. It is an area that attracts great public scrutiny, and its legal, political and social significance is reflected in the recent establishment of the office of Chief Coroner and the frequency with which Judges of the High Court and the Court of Appeal have been made deputy assistant coroners to conduct particularly sensitive inquests. In addition, the new Coroners and Justice Act came into force in 2013.

The aim of the book is to provide practitioners with summaries of relevant inquest cases in a format that is easy to search and use, and to enable them to anticipate the often unfamiliar issues that arise in coronial law.
