Holding the State to Account: Public Inquiries and Inquests seminar – 8 November 2012

26 October 2012 by

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  (events@1cor.com) 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.

    Dear Adam
    Thank you so much. I agree that a recording would be ideal – I cannot use Broadband here – so if you could provide a “podcast” it would be really helpful.
    I believe that One Crown Office Row is the byword of excellence for Human Rights.
    With best wishes

    Dear One Crown Office Row
    What an excellent opportunity – would it be possible for this to be filmed so that we can see and hear it too?
    Your work is groundbreaking and inspirational.
    Best wishes
    Rosemary Cantwell

      Dear Rosemary – thank you for your kind comment. We should be able to arrange that – at the least we will record the audio.
