Leading barrister to lecture on-Island next month
September 11, 2012
A unique insight into the workings of a coroner's court will be offered by a London barrister at a lecture organised by the Isle of Man Law Society next month.
As coroner of Westminster, Dr Fiona Wilcox recently presided over the Gareth Williams 'spy in the bag' case.
He was the M16 agent whose body was discovered in a holdall at his London flat in August 2010.
Dr Wilcox has Manx connections, is dual-qualified as a barrister and a doctor, and worked at the old Noble's Hospital before her career took her to the UK.
Jane O'Rourke is chief executive at the Law Society.
She says the lecture from an eminent coroner handling high-profile cases will have wide appeal to the public:
the lecture is on October 5 at the Claremont Hotel in Douglas.
