Our annual Coroners Court Conferences offers a unique opportunity for Victorian, interstate and overseas Coroners to engage with emerging issues challenging society and the impact on their inquisitorial role.
In 2019, the Conference focused on preventable death. Covering topics including the introduction of Victoria's new assisted dying laws, pill-testing, elder abuse, suicide in Aboriginal and remote communities and social isolation, participants and presenters engaged with the question of 'What is a preventable death?'
Award winning playwright, Hannie Rayson, closed the Conference with a humorous but touching oration on what it means to lead a meaningful life.
We are currently working with the Coroners Court to design the 2020 Conference program. We welcome ideas for collaboration. If you have suggestions, please get in touch.
