20 years since Middleton / INQUEST Northern quiz

20 years since Middleton

This event, on Thursday 21 March, will look at the progress and impact of Article 2 inquests since the Middleton judgement in March 2004.

There will be several speakers including an introduction from GCN’s Pete Weatherby KC, who took part in the original inquest – Regina (Middleton) v West Somerset Coroner and another [2004] UKHL 10.

We will hear from INQUEST about their work and the impact of the inquest process on bereaved families.

Members of our inquests and inquiries team will provide a case review and look at the legal developments in Article 2 since Middleton, and there will be panel discussions about:

  • availability and eligibility criteria of legal aid for bereaved Interested Persons at inquests, and
  • the impact of Middleton and Article 2 in different contexts.

The event will run from 11:00am until 4:30pm, with arrivals from 10:30am. Lunch will be provided, and refreshments will be available during the breaks throughout the event. There will be an opportunity to socialise, with some drinks, after the event.
