The Inquest Book: The Law on Coroners and Inquests edited by Caroline Cross was published earlier this year. This week, profits raised of £954.41 have been donated to the Bar Pro Bono Unit by the authors.
The Bar Pro Bono Unit is in its 20th anniversary year and their work is more important than ever. The national charity is a one of its kind organisation, set up to help match barristers to people who need their legal services but could not otherwise afford their expertise.
The organisation helps to ensure that the process runs smoothly and that a certain level of service is given. The Bar Pro Bono Unit relies purely on donations from the Bar.
The Inquest Book continues to be on sale through Hart Publishers on Amazon, and at 1COR events.
Fourteen other members of Chambers have contributed to chapters to the book including, Kate Beattie, Sir Neil Garnham, Alasdair Henderson, Matthew Hill, David Mankell, Rachel Marcus, Isabel Mcardle, Richard Mumford, Pritesh Rathod, Peter Skelton QC, Marina Wheeler QC, Dame Philippa Whipple and Lois Williams.
