As LAG moves into its 50th year, we are delighted to welcome Professor Leslie Thomas QC as our new patron. Leslie is a leading and respected voice on inquests, and has written and trained for LAG for many years, with his book, Inquests: a practitioner’s guide
now in its third edition (co-authored with Adam Straw QC, Daniel Machover and Danny Friedman QC). He also co-authors the 'Inquests and inquiries: update' in Legal Action.
He is a very popular trainer, understanding the importance of sharing his knowledge and skill. His online training course, ‘How to deal with the dark arts in the coroner’s court
’, is scheduled for 6 December. He is a lifelong social justice champion who continues to speak up for those most in need.
LAG chair Dr Laura Janes said: ‘I am thrilled to welcome Leslie Thomas QC as LAG’s latest patron. Leslie is a long-standing friend, author and trainer for LAG, as well as a fearless advocate who tirelessly speaks truth to power.’
Leslie said: ‘I am just really honoured to be patron of LAG, which has consistently been at the forefront in providing progressive and first-class practical solutions, legal education and knowledge.’
