LC: Have your say on our Sentencing Code plans

As part of the Law Commission’s consultation on a new sentencing code it will host a series of free public events.

Currently, the law of sentencing procedure is contained in many different Acts of Parliament, dating as far back as the 14th century. It is often not clear how the Acts apply and many use outdated and inaccessible language.

As a result, Law Commissioner Professor David Ormerod QC and the project team will set out their proposals for change and ask for views to help form their final recommendations to government.

Aimed at lawyers, students or policy makers you can book your place below.
