Summer edition of Inquest Law magazine out now
28 August 2014
The latest edition of Inquest Law magazine has now been published and is available to subscribers.
In Inquest Law 30, Dexter Dias QC writes about the legacy of the police shooting of Cherry Groce following the inquest into her death, examining what it has taught us about police-community relations, access to justice and the intrinsic value of historic inquests. Fiona McGhie and Nancy Collins of Irwin Mitchell solicitors discuss the effect that clarification of what constitutes the deprivation of liberty will have on jury inquests and article 2 compliance.
There is also an extensive legal update and thirteen individual casenotes on inquests covering deaths involving the police, prison deaths, deaths in mental health settings and in immigration detention.

‘I was already working with INQUEST, which is the organisation who monitor deaths in custody, and at one AGM I told the audience that what happened to these people [killed in police custody like Chistopher Alder, Roger Sylvester and many others] could happen to any of us. And then a couple of years later, I was standing in front of them again but now it had happened to my cousin. So my family and me were now “users” of Inquest. It shows you that none of us are immune – here am I, Benjamin Zephaniah, patron of INQUEST and client of INQUEST at the same time.’
