We are delighted to share with you the third issue of 5 Essex Court’s Inquests and Inquiries newsletter – Insight.

In this issue:

Alison Hewitt assesses the impact that the coronavirus crisis has had on coroners and inquests, and how "recovery" will progress

The latest decisions in the ever-evolving picture of art.2 of the ECHR are considered by Jason Beer QC and Emma Price (Maguire) and Amy Clarke (Lee).

Francesca Whitelaw writes about the knotty issue of causation and the use of statistics in coronial law (Carole Smith and Chidlow).
John Goss brings us up to date on costs and damages (Fullick, Adath Yisroel Burial Society, and Jordan).

Insight: Inquests and Inquiries is edited by Alison Hewitt and Jonathan Dixey.
