This is the new 2nd edition of the dedicated Scottish text on Prisons law. A comprehensive account of the laws governing prisons is provided, including admissions, disciplinary offences, parole and life sentences.

All relevant legislation is included as the text covers criminal law in respect of imprisonment, both in respect of remands in custody and sentencing. The text includes analysis of recent case law from Scotland, England and the European Court of Human Rights whilst also examining the structures of prison as well as processes that take place within the prison system itself.

This edition will include coverage of a wide range of changes, including detail on the Scottish Prison Service being placed for the first time on a statutory footing and the expectation of the Prisons and Young Offenders Institutions (Sc) Rules 2006 to be given a radical overhaul. The major reform of the Prisoners and Criminal Proceedings (Sc) Act 1993 will also be covered.
