This week on Part-Heard we are joined by Sir John Goldring and Jim Robottom for the fourth and final episode of our Inquest Series, based on “Coroners Investigations and Inquests” a Lexis-Nexis book which Jim has co-edited with Rose Harvey-Sullivan, James Weston and Richard Baker. It has been written by the editors together with David Matthew, Sarah Edwards, Adam Korn, Kate Lumbers, Conor Dufficy, James Macdonald, Ross Beaton and Kate Temple- Mabe alongside leading inquest solicitors; Jill Paterson, Lynda Reynolds, Claire Moore and Tom Jervis.  The book is an accessible and authoritative practical guide for practitioners working in the field.

Jim has extensive experience representing interested persons at high profile inquests and in subsequent civil claims.

Sir John Goldring is currently the President of the Court of Appeal of the Cayman Islands, prior to this appointment he sat in various judicial capacities. He was coroner to the second Hillsborough Inquests, and recently a member of the Working Party of the charity JUSTICE, which published its report on Inquests and Inquiries reform When Things Go Wrong: the response of the justice system, on 24th August 2020.
