Public inquiries and inquests: is this justice? will see speakers discuss the need for a ‘Hillsborough Law’, which would ensure a statutory duty of candor for public authorities. The event, hosted by Greater Manchester Law Centre (GMLC) and Greater Manchester Association of Trade Union Councils (GMATUC) will also look at how and whether public inquiries and inquests can be used to deliver justice.
