Welcome to this special issue of the Quarterly Medical Law Review (QMLR), brought to you by the barristers at 1 Crown Office Row.

We are endeavouring to provide legal analysis of changes caused by the ongoing coronavirus situation. Given the fast moving nature of this situation, we will likely produce a number of special issues, which will be emailed to subscribers and posted on the 1COR website, as per usual.

At present, we have two articles. The first concerns changes to coroners’ investigations, and is written by Richard Mumford and Caroline Cross.

The second is an analysis of the new Coronavirus Act, written by Darragh Coffey. It is split into two parts, the second part will be published at a later date.

We also have an upcoming article by Gideon Barth on deaths in custody and coronavirus which will be added in future. There are also links to helpful resources which will be updated.
