THE DEFINITIVE WORK ON CORONERS’ LAW AND PRACTICE
Jervis on Coroners is the definitive work on coroners’ law and practice. It offers complete guidance on the legal system influenced by diverse government bodies, local authorities, the police, the Home Office, the Department of Health and the Ministry of Justice.
Jervis takes you step by step through the legal principles, procedure and practice that are involved before, during and after a coroner’s investigation or an inquest. Every aspect is covered, from basic practice and procedure through to the more complex areas of homicide, notifiable accidents and prescribed diseases, treasure, and disasters.
