Trinity Chambers Civil Liberties & Human Rights Webinar Series – Inquests

In the third edition of Trinity Chambers’ Civil Liberties & Human Rights webinar series, barristers from the Team focus on Coroner’s Inquests and are delighted to welcome guest speaker Jodie Anderson, Senior Caseworker at INQUEST.

INQUEST is the only charity providing expertise on state related deaths and their investigation to bereaved people, lawyers, advice and support agencies, the media and parliamentarians. Their specialist casework includes deaths in police and prison custody, immigration detention, mental health settings and deaths involving multi-agency failings or where wider issues of state and corporate accountability are in question. This includes work around the Hillsborough football disaster and the Grenfell Tower fire.

In its 'In praise of...INQUEST' editorial, The Guardian writes of the charity "…an organisation that shines a light into the state’s darkest corners, often on behalf of society’s most vulnerable people."

Introduced by Trinity Chambers’ Caroline Goodwin Q.C., the following topics are covered:

  • INQUEST - Truth, Justice, Accountability: an Overview - Jodie Anderson, Senior Caseworker, INQUEST
  • Judicial Review & Courts Bill - Caroline Goodwin Q.C., Trinity Chambers
  • Legal Aid Applications for Interested Persons at Inquests - Parissa Najah, Barrister, Trinity Chambers
