    This annual title is the essential sentencing text, updated with all the latest changes from the past 12 months, including the new Criminal Practice Directions, new Sentencing Guidelines, and all - important cases from the Court of Appeal (Criminal Division).

    The book is split into two parts. Part A contains everything you need to know about sentencing procedure, courts’ sentencing powers and sentencing principles. The title has been structured around the Sentencing Code with extensive commentary on the Sentencing Code (as amended) and guidance regarding the extent to which case law pre-dating the Sentencing Code continues to apply. Part B provides guidance on determining the appropriate sentence for almost all criminal offences, including the sentencing guidelines and important cases from the Court of Appeal (Criminal Division). Part B also includes commentary on the approach to determining the appropriate sentence designed to be useful to practitioners and the judiciary.

    The 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 from the authors and other expert practitioners and academics, identifying likely arguments and areas of ambiguity. There are concise summaries of all the relevant case law, giving users everything they need to know. The book is intended for use in sentencing hearings and appeals, in court and for out of court research.
