Inquests and inquiries are generally held in open court. This means that any member of the public may attend the proceedings.
In rare cases, however, the Coroner may close the court to members of the public or exclude particular persons from the courtroom.
Visits by school groups are not encouraged when the Court is in session. School groups may be accommodated when the court is not in session or, alternatively, an officer of the Coronial Information and Support Program (CISP) may be able to come to a school to speak to students. For enquires, please contact a CISP officer.
