Law Commission consultation on the Sentencing Code - Law Society response

31 January 2018

The Law Society has responded to the Law Commission’s consultation on its draft Sentencing Code for England and Wales.

We very much support the Code, as it will bring clarity to the law governing the sentencing process, will improve the efficiency of the criminal courts and bring about savings in time and money for all involved in the criminal courts, not least those of our members who practice in this area of law.
