Take a look inside Coronial Law

"I completed the Coronial Law Course remotely from March to June 2021. The course content was excellent, particularly the interactive elements and the case studies. My practice area at the Bar is in Inquests and Inquiries so I regularly represent Interested Persons in Coroners' Courts. The course provided a real insight into the role and work of a coroner which was new to me as a barrister. During the course I applied for the role of assistant coroner and was successfully appointed in June 2021. I would highly recommend the course to all aspiring coroners"

"I cannot speak highly enough of this course. It is hugely practical, well-organised and excellently presented overseen by the ever helpful and enthusiastic Coronial Law Lead at Bolton University, Dr Alicia Danielsson. It is also fantastic value for money-E250 for six 3-hour sessions rounded off with a Mock Inquest in a 7th session
The pandemic meant that the course was held remotely, but rather counter-intuitively I felt this added to the quality of the course. The lecturers, Professor Alan Walsh, Professor Christopher Dorries OBE, and Mr. Timothy Brennand, all hugely experienced and leaders in their field used the interactive technology available to ensure that attendees, through the use of real-time quizzes etc. were actively involved and engaged throughout.
For anyone other than coroners (for whom this course is not intended) it is difficult to think of a more beneficial and comprehensive introduction to Coronial Law."

""I attended the course before I moved from the Bar into teaching. The course was an excellent introduction to Coronial law. The mix of experienced coroners kept the sessions lively and engaging.""
