Some of the more high-profile inquiries of recent years include the Independent Inquiry into Child Sex Abuse, the Mid-Staffordshire Inquiry and the Levenson Inquiry.
The focus of an inquiry is first to determine exactly what happened, and then to say what must be done to prevent it from happening again. At the end of the process, an inquiry will produce a report detailing the key factual findings and any recommendations. Public inquiries do not have powers to say that an individual or organisation is liable, but any inquiry findings may be used to start a criminal or civil case.
Any person who had played a role in the matters being investigated by the inquiry or who has a significant interest in them can be designated a ‘core participant’ by the inquiry. Core participants can be awarded funding to pay for legal representation at a public inquiry.
Participating in a public inquiry can be a daunting and overwhelming experience for individuals and there will often be intense media interest.
Our team of lawyers across civil liberties, clinical negligence and personal injury have extensive experience in representing core participants at public inquiries.
