Sentencing in Australia provides an up-to-date explanation of sentencing law and practice in all nine Australian jurisdictions.

Sentencing is the area of law which consumes most court of appeal work and this title satisfies the need for a thorough and coherent treatment of this complex subject, which involves a wide range of complex and interacting factors.

In this new work, barrister and academic Mirko Bagaric and barrister Richard Edney consider the law across Australia. They examine existing practice and provide extensive analysis of the objectives of sentencing, in the form of incapacitation, deterrence, rehabilitation and proportionality.

The work systematically and comprehensively covers key mitigating and aggravating factors and the considerations which strongly influence sentencing determinations.

Key features include commentary on recent developments in the areas of:

  • the totality principle;
  • incapacitation;
  • prior convictions;
  • the parity principle;
  • harsh prison conditions;
  • sentencing ranges; and
  • indigenous offenders.
Sentencing in Australia offers practitioners a practical overview of the sentencing law and the plethora of considerations coming to bear in a given situation. It provides the perfect solution for students requiring a ready and effective explanation of this difficult field.

Sentencing in Australia is the logical choice for guidance on sentencing in each state and across the country. It is destined to become the preferred text on the subject.
