New sentencing code unveiled in UK Parliament

A project underway since 2014 has delivered a Bill in the UK Parliament that aims to simplify sentencing practice.  With benefits for both judges and practitioners alike, the consolidation of sentencing practice into one code may also have the unintended but no less valuable benefit of demystifying sentencing for a wider audience, relevant in the context of the widespread coverage of high profile and sensitive matters on social media

The Code will bring the sentencing procedural law that courts rely on into one place, with a clear and logical structure, making it more accessible for the public, judiciary and practitioners.
