The office of coroner is known to have existed since at least 1194 and has a rich and varied history. Do you know why coroners are the only locally funded part of the judiciary, or why coroners conduct inquests into both death and treasure?  Are you aware of the reforms that came into effect 10 years ago? Are you interested to hear about the state of the coronial service since those reforms and what the future might hold?

On 22 November 2023 at 5pm, the Chief Coroner, HHJ Thomas Teague KC, will be giving a virtual and in-person lecture on the history and development of the coronial service, and providing insights into its achievements and challenges.

Coroners’ investigations give bereaved families closure and play a crucial role in protecting public health. Join this MS Teams link  here (10-year lecture link) to find out more about this vital judicial service.
