Public Inquiries and inquests have dominated the headlines recently, with members of One Crown Office Row appearing in many of them, including:
- The Leveson Inquiry into the ethics of the press
- The Mid Staffordshire NHS Foundation Trust Public Inquiry
- The Baha Mousa Public Inquiry
- The Al-Sweady Public Inquiry
- The 7/7 Inquests
- The Victoria Climbié Inquiry.
On 8 November 2012 One Crown Office Row will be hosting a mock trial and panel discussion on this important subject. The event will draw on the latest case law concerning the scope of Article 2 investigations, the grounds for a public inquiry, and the test for re-opening inquests.
The speakers will be Neil Garnham QC, Jeremy Hyam, Richard Mumford, Caroline Cross, Adam Wagner and Matthew Hill .
The full flyer for the event is available here (PDF).
There are still a few places remaining to attend this event. If you are currently practising within the field of public and administrative law and/or inquests and would like to attend please contact Charlotte Barrow, Marketing Executive at One Crown Office Row (firstname.lastname@example.org) stating your name and organisation. Places will be allocated on a first-come-first-served basis.
CPD has been applied for and debate, drinks and snacks will of course follow.
