    The 9th edition of Sentencing in Hong Kong is a vital work of reference for anyone involved in the criminal law, as well as for students and observers.

    It examines all aspects of sentencing law and practice, and considers the effect of latest developments.

    The ninth edition of Sentencing in Hong Kong is an essential text for anyone involved in the criminal law, as well as for students and analysts. It examines all aspects of sentencing law, practice and procedure, and considers the impact of latest developments. These include the way in which assistance to the authorities should be evaluated, the weight to be placed upon victims’ interests, and sentencing for public order offences.


    Significant judgments are incorporated, and the updated Appendix contains the cases on sentencing principles and quantum of sentence, and indicates customary sentencing ranges. The effect of constitutional changes on sentencing is considered, as also are legislative changes. Aggravating and mitigating factors invariably affect sentence, and chapters have been expanded to accommodate recent decisions. The constitutionality of sentencing guidelines is considered, as also is the role of reviews of sentence in maintaining public confidence in criminal justice. The text overall has undergone modernisation, and case law from other jurisdictions has been widely referenced to illustrate particular propositions and provide a comparative context. At a time of turbulence in society, just sentencing has assumed yet greater significance, and the arrival of the ninth edition is welcome. It will not only provide guidance for courts and legal professionals, but also enlightenment for the wider community.
