This new annual title is an essential introduction and companion to the new Sentencing Code. The book is split into two parts: Part A contains everything you need to know about sentencing procedure, courts’ sentencing powers and the sentencing principles, including the Sentencing Code, and Part B provides guidance on determining the appropriate sentence for almost all criminal offences.

Lyndon Harris and Sebastian Walker were the lead lawyers at the Law Commission working on the drafting of the Sentencing Code. This new work guides practitioners though the various stages of a sentencing hearing and clearly indicates the considerations applicable to a sentencing decision. The title includes extensive expert commentary and summaries of all the relevant case law. For use in sentencing hearings and appeals, in court and for research.
