Kings College London is offering Coroners and lawyers the opportunity to join the ‘enormously popular’ ‘Coroners and Inquests’ course delivered by the former Chief Coroner, HH Peter Thornton QC

The course will consist of a series of five interactive seminars in November and December 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?
