The last year has seen the largest and most comprehensive reform of Coronial Law since the early nineteenth century. The new Coroners and Justice Act 2009 impacts upon every aspect of the Inquest and this comprehensive new work lays out both the substantive law and new procedure following the recent legislation and authorities. The whole coronial process is laid out in distinct chapters which consider the present and developing law. The book provides practical guidance from the beginning to the end of the process and includes a special chapter on Military inquests, creating an invaluable reference for both the practitioner and student of this fast developing area of law.
