Spring edition of Inquest Law magazine out now
11 April 2014
The latest edition of Inquest Law magazine has now been published and is available to subscribers.
Inquest Law 29 contains an indepth piece by Anna Edmundson, former Policy and Research Officer at INQUEST, and Charlotte Haworth Hird of Bindmans solicitors, discussing the process leading to the government's announcement that it is holding a review into the deaths of young people aged 18-24 in prison. Nancy Collins of Irwin Mitchell writes about the assessment of suicide and self harm in prison, and Gemma Vine of Lester Morrill solicitors discusses the impact of the Legal Aid, Sentencing and Punishment of Offenders Act 2012 and the Coroners and Justice Act 2009, both of which were implemented in 2013, on inquest practitioners seeking legal aid funding for families.
There is also a comprehensive legal update and a raft of casenotes covering deaths in prison, police and mental health detention.

‘l can not thank you all enough for the help and support you have given us over our terrible loss. If it wasn’t for INQUEST, we would not have been able to deal with the faults of the prison system, and try and make some changes. Once again thank you all and thank you for being there if ever l needed to speak to someone.’
– Mother of a young man who died in prison
