CORONERS: Practice and Procedure
Author: Dr. Brian Farrell
This is the first comprehensive text on coroner's practice and procedure in the Republic of Ireland. The text will meet the demand of the legal and medical professions and the Garda Síochána for such a book.
Its publication is timely given the current debate on coroner's law and the fact that the service provided by coroners is currently under review. The author is a member of the review commitee.
This book aims to provide guidance for uniform practice by furnishing a full description of the governing coroners.
The book refers to all the statutory legislation including the Coroner's Act 1962 (annotated), the Safety, Health and Welfare at Work Act 1989, the Criminal Law (Suicide) Act 1993, the Stillbirths Registration Act 1994 and the Criminal Justice (Location of Victims Remains) Act 1999
