    December 9 2016 | Conference papers | By Emma Norton

    There are essentially two ways in which a person may challenge the sufficiency of inquest proceedings or a decision by a coroner not to hold an inquest at all. The first and most obvious is by way of judicial review proceedings. The second is by way of a s13 application under the Coroners Act 1988.This paper will briefly consider the law and procedure pertaining to applications to the Attorney-General for a fiat and applications to the High Court pursuant to s13 of the Coroners Act 1988.

    Top Public Law Cases of the Year 2016

    November 2 2016 | Conference papers | By Monica Carss-Frisk QC, Iain Steele & Nusrat Zar

    The number and diversity of JR cases is now such that a review of the year can only hope to cover a small sample of the Administrative Court’s workload. The selection of cases here (from September 2015 to August 2016) necessarily reflects our personal choice, and no doubt there are many others that could have been included. We have each picked three cases. They are summarised in chronological order.

    Public law in public spaces

    July 15 2016 | Conference papers | By James Stark

    In the last 20 years or so Parliament has provided a rash of purportedly civil remedies to address various types of nuisance or anti-social behaviour. This began with housing ASB injunctions under the Housing Act 1996 which were significantly extended by the Anti-Social Behaviour Act 2003, the ASBO of the Crime and Disorder Act 1998 which whilst originally a stand alone civil remedy became most used after sentencing from criminal offences that constituted such behaviour, to follow have been gang related violence (and now drug dealing) injunctions and there have been or are a number of others such as football banning orders.
