Sudden Deaths and Fatal Accidents Inquiries is now established as the standard text in this field and this new edition continues to provide a clear and thorough explanation of this area of legal practice. The book takes the practitioner through the process from start to finish, providing details of the inquiry system and how to deal with each stage, bestowing confidence in a situation which is an unusual though increasing part of practice.

This timely new edition provides essential updates and includes coverage of judicial review and the impact of the Human Rights Act 1998, which are of increasing importance in this area, offering an understanding of their impact when advising clients. This title also takes account of changes to the rules of the Court of Session, completely updating the previous edition so the practitioner can apply the relevant rules with confidence. These additions ensure that this text remains an indispensable, thorough and authoritative guide for all those faced with a sudden death and seeking a clear route through the associated legal processes.

Publishing in the Greens Practice Library series this is the only text available on the Scottish inquiry system and includes comparisons to the substantially different English based coroner system, providing a highly useful examination of this area of the law.
