Tuesday 14 May 2024, 5.30pm–6.30pm, Virtual taster - Spotlight on: Coroner

Come along to this session and hear from the Senior Coroner for Leicester and South Leicestershire Professor Catherine Mason as she explains how her role investigates any death where the cause is not known, violent or unnatural. Catherine will talk through her day to day role as well as how she became a Coroner. This will be a fascinating look at a career that involves working within the law without being a Barrister or Solicitor.
