In this book, based on papers originally presented at a recent Cambridge Cropwood conference, a group of leading authorities address the key issues surrounding the future of sentencing in Britain, in the light particularly of the highly influential Halliday Report. These proposals for reform amount to the single most ambitious and comprehensive set of proposals for reconstituting the sentencing system of a common-law country, and include proposals to replace existing sentencing statutes, the establishment of a sentencing commission and sentencing guidelines, and the creation of a sentence review function in the judiciary.;The book also explores the broader set of policy problems and implications which are raised by the Halliday Report, drawing upon experiences of reform in other jurisdictions and contexts, particularly that of the USA. This book should be useful reading for anybody with an interest in the future of sentencing or the future direction of the criminal justice system.
