By John Cooper
The last year has seen the largest and most comprehensive reform of coronial law in the UK since the early 19th century. The UK's new Coroners & Justice Act impacts every aspect of the inquest, and this comprehensive new book lays out both the substantive law and new procedure following the 2010 legislation. The whole coronial process is laid out in distinct chapters, beginning with pre-inquest hearings and concluding with the use of verdicts in subsequent civil and criminal litigation, providing the reader with practical guidance, from the beginning to the end of the process. Written by John Cooper, who has appeared in a number of high-profile inquests and has a large amount of knowledge in the field, this is an invaluable reference for both the practitioner and student of this fast developing area of law.
