Jervis on Coroners is the definitive work on coroner's law and practice. It offers complete guidance on the legal system influenced by diverse government bodies, local authorities, the police, home office, Department of Health and the Department of Constitutional Affairs.

Jervis takes you logically through the legal principles, procedure and practice that is necessary before, during and after an inquest. Every aspect is covered, from basic practice and procedure through to the more complex areas of medical matters and instructions on dealing with special cases.

Author Paul Matthews' in-depth knowledge and expertise ensures that this vast and complex area of the law is clear and understandable. The text is interspersed with comprehensive annotation, detailed footnotes and helpful advice, including suggestions for further reading.
