Holding the State to Account: Public Inquiries and Inquests seminar – 8 November 2012
26 October 2012
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 (email@example.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.

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